Mango Avocado Salsa

I have confessed my love of avocado many many times. I freaking love those things. I believe that avocado is one of those foods you can add to almost anything and it’ll taste better. I love using avocado to add creaminess to salads.

Obviously one of the best ways to enjoy avocado is on top of a tortilla chip. The mango in this salsa provides a nice sweetness to balance out the red onion. I made a double batch of this Mango Salsa when we had some friends over and this was the first dish to get devoured. It’s amazing.
