Friends, Olivia and I are back at it again for our three-part recipe collaboration. First, we had our Frozen Strawberry Aperol Spritz, then our Air Fryer Shrimp Tacos, and then… my favorite recipe yet: our Mango Avocado Salsa. This salsa is creamy, tangy, salty, sweet, and includes two of our favorite ingredients: mangos and avocados. If you don’t follow Olivia already, you MUST. She has the best gluten-free recipes, and is one of my dearest friends!

Now, mangos tend to get a bad reputation, because they are a fruit that is higher in natural sugars. But, don’t let that deter you, because fruit sugars are natural sugars, which means that they’re good for your brain! Plus, mangos are also high in Vitamin C, Vitamin A, and fiber, making them just as healthy as they are delicious. Plus, fruit salsas are definitely the vibe for this summer. I love a good salty-sweet recipe, and this is one of the healthiest and most delicious ways to enjoy that flavor combination!

This salsa is absolutely delicious when served with chips, but my favorite way to eat it is on top of our 10 Minute Air Fryer Shrimp Tacos. These grain-free tacos are loaded with juicy, tender shrimp and taste absolutely delicious when topped with this salsa. In fact, I would go as far as to say that the tacos aren’t complete without the salsa – they’re just that good!

What You Need to Make the Ultimate Summer Salsa

  • Mangos: In my opinion, mangos are the ultimate summertime fruit! They’re sweet, they’re juicy, they’re refreshing, and they add the perfect amount of sweetness to any salsa recipe!
  • Avocado: Avocados are one of the best sources of healthy fats, and they’re perfectly creamy too. They’re delicious when they’re added to salsa, and this recipe is no exception of that!
  • Red Onion: Diced red onion is another key salsa ingredient that really shines in this recipe.
  • Cilantro: Of course, it wouldn’t be a salsa recipe without the cilantro! I like using lots of fresh cilantro for a really bright, herby flavor.
  • Lime: When it comes to lime juice, fresh is always best. You’ll need the juice of one lime for this recipe! Plus, the lime juice helps to keep the avocado from turning brown.
  • Garlic Clove: A little bit of garlic goes a long way in this recipe!
  • Jalapeno: I love a little kick of spice in my salsa, which is why jalapeño is the perfect ingredient! If you’re sensitive to spice, you can always omit it from this recipe.
  • Sea Salt: And, of course, a pinch of sea salt helps to perfectly round out the flavors of this salsa.

How to Perfectly Slice The Mango

Believe it or not, there is an art to mango slicing, and if you’ve ever struggled to cut a mango, then you know what I mean. Luckily, there is an easy trick to getting the perfect sliced mangos, every time, and I’m about to teach it to you!

To perfectly slice the mango, start by slicing the mango from top to bottom and along the sides of the seed, on both sides of the mango.

Then, with skin still intact, gently cut vertical lines through the flesh of the mango, being careful not to slice through the skin. Repeat the process with horizontal lines until you’ve sliced the flesh into squares.

Once your mango is cut, use a large spoon to carefully scoop out the diced mango, separating the flesh from the skin. Then, enjoy as desired!

3 Steps to Making This Perfect Avocado Salsa

Making this salsa is so simple and easy, and it comes together in only three steps!

To make this salsa, start by chopping the mango, avocado, red onion, cilantro, and jalapeño, and add them to a large bowl. Next, add in the rest of the ingredients and toss until they’re fully combined.

Finally, serve with chips (or with my 10 Minute Air Fryer Shrimp Tacos) and enjoy! Store any leftovers in an airtight container, in the fridge, for up to three days.
