Cinco de Mayo Recipe

Today, in honor of Cinco de Mayo, I am doing a "recipe re-run"...
(Since I didn't have many readers in 2011,
you probably never saw it anyway!)

And If you LOVE mangoes like I do,
you really can't go wrong with this delicious salsa!

Mango Avocado Salsa

Ingredients:

1 ripe mango
1 avocado
2 Tbs fresh lime juice
2 Tbs chopped cilantro
Dash of salt
Tortilla Chips or "scoops"
 (Lately I prefer a GMO-free alternative tortilla chip though!)

Chop up all the ingredients.

Make sure the mango is pretty ripe, 
otherwise the salsa won't be sweet enough.

Try it with about 2 Tablespoons of lime first
but I usually add extra to make it more tart.

Mix all the ingredients together.

And there you have it!

It is so easy to make and everyone always seems to love it.
Even my kids eat it
and they don't even realize it is healthy!

I have also mixed this salsa with some lettuce and chicken
 to make wraps!

Happy Cinco de Mayo!
