Whole30 Avocado Mango Salsa


As seen on Day 27 of our Whole30 Challenge (click to read more).

We served this delicious salsa with Whole30 Jerk Chicken (click to see the full recipe from Day 27) which was originally modified from a recipe from A Saucy Kitchen. This recipe is also Paleo-Friendly & Gluten Free.



Before I go into the recipe specifics, I'd like to quickly circle back to Day 1 of our Whole30 Challenge. For a quick refresher, I had discovered a Whole30 Timeline that mentioned the phenomenon of "Tiger Blood" that could be experienced in days 16-27... Well, 26 days ago, I didn't have even the slightest inkling as to what this would entail. My best guess imagined it would look something similar to this...

Well folks, I think it's safe to say, I have the evidence in front of me... aka hubs going to town finishing projects off the honey-do list left and right. Let's just say he made up for lost time this weekend and literally finished a weekend's worth of work in 5 hours. He mowed the lawn, treated the lawn with weed killer, cleaned the patio woodwork, finished a vintage window frame, tackled the laundry pile with me (and even laundered/folded his questionable clean/dirty pile that had been sitting in the spare room for about a month), and put Isabella back together! Humpty Dumpty Izzy is back to good ol' Isabella! His new motto... "If at first you don't succeed, try again 6 months later with Tiger Blood." :)

Onto the recipe that you've been waiting for...


Whole30 Avocado Mango Salsa

INGREDIENTS:

  • 2 large mangos (peeled, pitted, and diced)

  • 2 avocados, pitted and diced (I only had 1 and it still worked well)

  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro, finely chopped

  • juice from 2 limes (I used 1 lime and it still was an A+)

  • 2 tablespoons chopped jalapeño pepper

STEPS:​

  1. Make the avocado mango salsa by combining all salsa ingredients in a bowl and place in fridge until ready to use.

  2. Serve this salsa with chicken, fish, or as a tasty dip.

TASTE TEST: The avocado mango salsa complimented the chicken perfectly. The dish was a lovely blend of sweet with a little spice and chock full of flavor. The salsa was fresh and so good we could eat it by itself. Hubs comment, "That was finger-lickin' good" as he literally scraped the last of the salsa with his middle finger...(because, "That was the longest finger for the bowl...") Oh hubs...
