Recipe: Spicy Mango and Avocado Salad

Serves: 4-6

My husband said he would never order this on a menu but when he tried it, he bacame a believer. Sweet mango, buttery avocado, tart lime juice, and spicy jalepeno make a wonderful summertime salad. Make sure your fruit is juicy and ripe!


2 large mango, cubed
2 large avocado, cubed
2 limes, juiced
1/4 cup thinly sliced red onion
1-2 Tbsp minced jalepeno (mild-hot)


1. In a medium bowl, combine all ingredients together. Season with salt and pepper. Serve room temperature or slightly chilled – the flavors are more intense at room temperature.

    That looks so good, if I was not allergic to mangos i would definately try this. I love avacado!

  3. Do you think this could be served alongside (or on top of) a simply cooked plain white fish filet, such as halibut, for a main dish?

  4. We loved this. I’d make it a million times. Definitely tasty!
