Juicy mango, buttery avocado, crunchy red cabbage, sweet bell peppers, and zesty jalapeño are tossed with tangy lime juice, earthy cilantro, and a touch of extra virgin olive oil. It’s beyond tasty and entirely versatile.

Ingredients You Need to Make Mango Avocado Salsa

  • Mango: ideally a fresh, ripe mango
  • Avocado: ripe, but firm enough to dice
  • Red Cabbage: or green cabbage
  • Red Bell Pepper: or yellow or orange sweet pepper
  • Green Onion 
  • Jalapeño: leave the seeds for extra spice
  • Fresh Cilantro
  • Fresh Lime Juice:  about ½ lime
  • Extra Virgin Olive Oil 
  • Ground Cumin
  • Kosher Salt and Freshly Ground Black Pepper

What kind of a salsa eater are you? When you dip a chip, do you scoop out just enough salsa to coat a corner? Or do you scoop so much that your chip is barely visible? I’m the latter.

I love my salsas raw, chunky, and good enough to eat straight by the spoonful. This mango avocado salsa qualifies.

When I’m planning to serve this salsa as a dip for chips, I dice all of the ingredients quite small so they’re less likely to topple off (the same is true for Pico de Gallo and this Fire Roasted Salsa recipe that’s made in the food processor). For topping seared fish, fish tacos, Pulled Pork Nachos or Shrimp Tacos with Mango Salsa, I make a coarser version.

How do you cut a mango?

For cutting mangoes, this mango splitter is indispensable. It’s one of the few gadgets that’s really worth owning. Just cut a tiny slice from the mango bottom (to make it stable on end), center the splitter over the stem and in one downward motion you’ll have two beautiful halves of mango flesh separated from the core. I recommend peeling the mango before splitting it, but after is fine too. Whatever works best for cut with a splitter

    I would never have thought about adding purple cabbage to salsa – but it’s a great idea! The crunch is key. Love this salsa for spring…either by itself or on top of fish tacos!!
