Real Recipe: Mango Avocado Salsa

Last weekend myself, the boyfriend, and a few of our friends headed up north to stay in a cabin for a few nights. All in all there were six of us, with six hungry mouths to feed. Although we were going grocery shopping on the way up, I wanted to bring some snacks that were light and healthy (and delicious of course!).

You know how cabins/camping trips work (or if you live in Minnesota you certainly should!). Beer, brats, potato chips, and other deliciousness that is not necessarily the healthiest for you. With that in mind, I prepared to make Mango Avocado Salsa, Tomato Mozzarella Salad, and some yummy Chocolate Chip Cookies (coming in a later post, although we all know cookies are not considered light or healthy!).

This dish is great for a picnic, grill out, or any other summer occasion in which you need to bring a dish to share. Or you can make it and eat it all to yourself (which you just might after you get your hands on it!), your call :)

1 avocado, peel removed, pitted and diced

1 red bell pepper, de-stemmed and seeds removed, diced

1 jalapeño, seeds removed, minced (or without if you want to skip the heat!)

2 limes, cut in half

Salt and pepper, to taste



  1. Combine mango, avocado, onion, bell pepper, jalapeño, and cilantro in bowl; stir to combine
