Mango Avocado Cucumber Salsa

I just love fresh salsa and using a sweet mango in this Mango Avocado Cucumber Salsa recipe elevates the salsa to a whole new level.

Mangos are in season right now and a perfect addition to your salsa needs.


How to Choose a Mango:
There are so many varietals of mango and they are all amazingly delicious. For this salsa recipe, I like to choose a larger mango OR you can buy 2 smaller ones.

*Color doesn’t matter – the color of the mango doesn’t indicate its ripeness – so don’t worry if the mango is orange, red, yellow, or green. Because there are so many different varietals, you’ll get different colors of mango all the time.

*Slightly Squeeze the Mango – a ripe mango will be slightly softer and have a slight give when gently squeezed. A medium-ripe mango will be firmer. An unripe mango will be very firm to the touch.

*Smell It – sometimes ripe mangos will have a fruity aroma by their stems. You can smell the mango to enjoy its lovely fragrance.

*If You Need to Ripen the Mango – have no fear if your mango is unripe. Once you buy it, you can place it in a paper bag and it will ripen faster.

Why This Recipe Rocks:
This recipe provides sweetness from the mango. Tartness from the lime juice. Creaminess from the avocado. Crunch from the cucumber. A little heat from the jalapeno. All the flavors just blend together with that perfect Wow factor to elevate any dish.


*Another winner about this salsa recipe, is that it can be used at any meal such as:
*Breakfast
*Lunch
*Dinner
*Snacks


Pair the Mango Avocado Cucumber Salsa with:

*Chips

*Tacos – fill the tacos with ground beef, chicken, pork, fish, tofu, or beans
*Wraps – add the salsa to a wrap filled with chicken or tuna and you have a fantastic lunch

*Salads – substitute the salsa for your standard salad dressing and you’ll get even more fruits and vegetables into your daily routine

*Grain Bowls – pick a grain like brown rice, black rice, or quinoa. Add a bean/legume. Add a vegetable. Top with the salsa. For more grain bowl recipe ideas, check out this past post: Vegan Cauliflower Black Bean and Quinoa Grain Bowl
*Baked Potato – baked potatoes pair perfectly with salsa

*Any Protein of Choice – fish, pork, chicken, steak, eggs, or tofu all taste divine with this salsa – and you can cook the proteins any way you want (grilled, baked, roasted, broiled, sauteed)
