Mango Avocado Salsa

I love fruit-based salsas. They’re wonderfully versatile, using whatever fruits are in season and look good. And, they’re good on just about anything. On fish, on chicken, on pork, wrapped into a burrito, with tortilla chips…are you picking up what I’m putting down here?

This mango avocado variety is my hands down favorite topping for fish tacos. The sweetness from the mango, a crunch from the onion, a little bit of heat from a jalapeno, and a big dose of freshness from lots of chopped cilantro. I usually go with red onion for my salsas, but I had some gorgeous Cippolini onions from my crop share this week. They were mild and sweet, but they worked well with the salsa.

There was a slight chill in the air this morning. We still have August to look forward to, and I plan on enjoying every minute of the abundance of ripe summer fruits while they last. I hope you do too!

    Avocado and mango just seem to be made to go together, don’t they? During this visit to Vermont I have been buying champagne mangos for my mom. At age 92, she is loving them!
    Your photo is beautiful! Hope you can get California avocados where you live!

      I always buy CA avocados when I can. How wonderful it must be to go out into your backyard, and pluck one off the tree! 🙂
