You’ll love this because it’s full of healthy fats, fruit, smooth, slightly sweet, and is like a Mexican vacation in your mouth. Just don’t drink the water. My grocery store was having a ‘mega sale’ on mangos and the impulse shopper in me bought about 8 of them without thinking about who was going to eat them all or what would happen when they all ripened at the same time, on the same day, and at approximately the same time. Thanks ethylene gas….not really.
So, I was a good sport, I ate a bunch of them but had two sad souls left. They ripened at approximately 4:56 on a Tuesday and then it was all down hill from there. I realized that unless I wanted to eat them in one sitting or do something with them, I was going to have to cut them up no matter what. Incidentally, avocados are also something that live in my house on a regular basis. So, when staring at my counter and seeing the situation, I decided the two should get tossed in the same bowl.
- 2 ripe mangos
- 2 large ripe avocados
- 1/4 c. onion
- 1/4 c. chopped cilantro
- 2 tablespoons lime or lemon juice
- Pit and chunk the avocados into a bowl.
- Slice and chunk the mango into the same bowl.
- Add the chopped onion, cilantro, and citrus juice on top of the mixture.
- Mix together.
- Add salt/pepper to taste.
- Serve fresh!
