I’ve come to realize I am a pretty bad photographer.  My pictures are certainly not professional, but that is not my problem.  My problem is I can’t cook and take pictures at the same time.  Maybe I’m just disorganized?  This is possible… I know my husband would agree.

So, here I am, all excited to share this recipe with you and I am just now realizing I don’t have a pictures of the final product of this yummy and very pretty salsa.  It was beautiful all yellow and green with flecks of red.  All I have the picture below….

My humble apologies.  I suggest you make this even through you don’t know what it will look like when you are done — I promise it is very pretty. I also promise to be better with my pics.

Summer in a bowl…..

a work in process... before avocado and cilantro

Mango and avocado salsa

  • 1 ripe mango, peeled, soft parts diced
  • 1 avocado, peeled, pitted and diced
  • 1/2 red pepper diced
  • 1/4 cup diced red onion
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped cilantro
  • 1-2 tsp agave nectar (depends on how sweet you like it and how sweet your mango is)
  • Juice from half a lime
  • salt to taste

Chilli pepper would be a nice addition if you want a little heat.  I would add 1/2 – 1 full tsp of crushed chilli flakes. The sweetness of the mango would definitely benefit from it.  However, I’m cooking for the kids so I keep this one mild and sweet.
