A bright and beautiful salsa recipe that goes tomato-less for a fun twist. Light and refreshing, it’s best served with tortilla chips and good vibes.


  • 2 mangoes, sliced
  • 2 avocados, diced
  • 1/4 cup cilantro, minced
  • 1/4 cup mint, minced
  • 1/4 red pepper, minced
  • 1 jalapeno, minced (optional)
  • 1/4 red onion, minced
  • 4 limes, juiced
  • 1/4 cup olive oil, separated
  • kosher salt, to taste
  • tortilla chips, for serving


  1. Preheat or grill pan on high heat until very hot and oil the grates. Using 2 tablespoons of olive oil, brush both sides of the mango slices to coat, and press onto the hot grates. 
  2. Grill about 6 minutes, flipping halfway, until nice dark grill marks appear. Remove from the heat and set aside to cool.
  3. Combine the avocados, cilantro, mint, red pepper, jalapeno (if using), red onion, lime juice, and remaining olive oil in a large bowl. When the mango is cool, dice and toss into the mixture.
  4. Add the lime juice, remaining olive oil and salt to taste. Mix to combine.
  5. Adjust with more lime juice, olive oil and salt, as needed.


Make this recipe a day ahead and refrigerate over night to help the flavors meld. Serve cold or room temperature with crunchy tortilla chips
