Mango, Avocado, and Cucumber Salsa

Debora Hotard


I love Hispanic-inspired flavors and keep Spanish oregano and cilantro in my home garden. My herbs are ready to use which inspired this salsa recipe. I also found avocados, cucumbers and mangoes on sale at the supermarket yesterday.

I served this salsa over grilled, Cuban seasoned pork loin chops with a side of Brown Rice & Black Bean Pilaf. It made for a fantastic meal. I hope you enjoy as much as my family did.

I also plan to try it over grilled chicken and both grilled shrimp and fish.

Note: You may refrigerate for up to a day ahead of serving.

There are so many layers of flavor from the sweetness of the mango to the heat from the chili peppers, I couldn't get enough of it. This would be amazing on top of some grilled chicken, pork or fish. It would be just as good with some tortilla chips. Light, refreshing and delicious! Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
