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.

      I fixed the recipe to be consistent. Any dark flavored vinegar that you enjoy would be perfect in this recipe.

      Me too. In fact it’s pretty much the only way I prepare veggies…

      Beets are one of my favorites too. Can you believe I had never had one until a couple years ago?!?

    I used 4 tbs butter and 4 tbs olive oil.
    Tossed vegatables, oil, balsamic vinegar, salt, pepper, 2 tsp or so dry sage and 2 tsp or so dry rosemary in large bowl and then spread on two baking sheets.
    Roasted for 30 minutes and then rotated cooking sheets in oven and roasted for another 30 minutes. No stirring required

    Added 4 smoked Polish sausages cut into 1″ pieces for last 30 minutes.

    Next time I will line cooking sheets with foil to make cleanup simpler.

    A real keeper!!

    I had a beet that was wasting away in the fridge and a lonely turnip too. So I added them and 2 large carrots, all peeled and chunked, into a baking dish. Topped with 2 Tbsp sliced butter, coated with 2 tsp dried sage, half tsp rosemary, salt & pepper. After 1 hour in the oven, stirred, splashed with apple cider vinegar, and served. Very satisfying, and a nice accompaniment to roast chicken. Thanks for sharing!
