The only perks of India summers in my humble opinion is the availability of stone fruits. Pears, peaches, cherries, plums and to top them all Mangoes. Plump and juicy, this saffron beauty has made it’s royal entry in the vegetable and fruits stores and piles after piles of different varieties tempt me, even more, to come back home with a few bags full of this king of fruits. Churned into a shake for breakfast, grilled on a grill and served with some whipped cream for dessert or cut into slices to snack on any time of the day and my summers are good. The newest addition to my mango mania is this Mango Avocado Salsa. All it takes is five minutes to chop the mangoes, avocado, onion and tomatoes and you have a brilliant snack ready. There is a lot of entertaining happening at my place off late and Mango Avocado Salsa has become my favorite snack option. It goes really well with nachos or any other crackers and is a breeze to make.
I have intentionally used avocado in this mangolicious salsa as avocado not only blends well with the fruitiness of mango but also because it is very nutritious. Avocados are full of fiber. By eating avocado, we reduce our cholesterol levels. Moreover, avocados make us healthier and fit. They are full of antioxidants which are very good for our eyes. Avocados even help in preventing cancer and arthritis. Ladies, avocados even help in losing weight, so make sure that you and your family relish avocados often!
