Nutrition Tip: Avocados are all the rage – they’re full of flavor, chock-full of heart healthy fats, and pair well with so many different fruits, veggies… well, you name it and it will likely go well with avocado. Try this sweet, tangy, and slightly spicy salsa-guacamole remix for a new topping on summertime grilled chicken tacos, burritos bowls, or fresh fish.

This salsa is best enjoyed right after it’s made but will last a day in the refrigerator. Mangoes and avocadoes are ripe when they give a little bit under light pressure. Store ripe avocadoes in the refrigerator to lengthen their life 1-2 days. Mangoes should be used as soon as possible as they will turn brown and mushy shortly after optimal ripeness.
