A slightly spicy, tangy, and sweet Tropical Mango Avocado Salsa, playfully studded with chunks of colorful tomato, pineapple, jalapeño, and mango.
Yesterday was the most B-E-A-utiful day!! After a bit of a gray and chilly morning, I came home from running errands to find the sun out and the ocean breeze blowing like crazy.
I’m pretty sure Florida forgot that it was the last day of April, which has to have been one of the hottest I can remember.
The high was, I think, in the low 70s. Absolutely perfect weather to turn off the AC, open all the windows in the house, and air it out one last time before the 90s soon return.
Is it weird that I gauge my homebody happiness level based on whether I can open my windows for the day? There’s nothing better to me than being able to lounge around with a fresh spring breeze blowing through the house, with music playing, and good smells coming out of the kitchen.
I desperately need a house with more windows.
Our sad little neglected hammock even got some attention from Vader and I. After checking on my newest out-of-the-kitchen project (but still directly related), our raised garden beds, I plopped down with my Kindle and a bowl of this ridiculously colorful Tropical Mango Avocado Salsa, and proceeded to soak up a little spring sunshine.

Two dips with avocado as the star in one week? What the heck?!
Summer’s coming, folks, and I just can’t help myself. I get in the mood for cocktail drinkin’ and chip dippin’ when it’s hot out. It sure beats turning on the oven, right?
Not to mention how popular it will be at all the fun Cinco de Mayo celebrations happening in a few days!
Oh. You forgot about that, didn’t you?
Not judging. I’m a master procrastinator.
Luckily this stuff is your simple 10 minute solution! Grab some Corona and a heaping bowl of this stuff, and you’re good to go.
I promise, everyone will thank you for it.
Or, you could just call it a fruit salad, grab a spoon, and keep it all to yourself.
Trust me, I’m not against that idea.
This salsa recipe was inspired by a similar one I did a few months back and entered a contest with. Which I obviously didn’t win, since you’d have heard about it.
I have a hard time keeping exciting news to myself, what can I say.
Even with no prizes, this fancy, fruity avocado salsa is a winner. I used the (relatively small amount of) leftovers to top some chicken breasts I grilled up for dinner, and talk about delicious! Not a new idea at all, but wonderfully fresh and oh so summery!
This stuff has potential…to show up in our home multiple times over the next few months.
I’ll have my spoon at the ready.

I am in such a guacomole recipe rut. This is such a wonderfully great recipe idea just in time for the summer months. And you did an amazing job of showcasing all the ingredients.
Yum! This looks really good. I only seem to like salsa when we are out back having a BBQ! Then I am all about chips, Salsa and all of that. This would be a perfect one especially because I wouldn’t have to fight my kids for it! My husband on the other hand it may be a battle. This looks so good!

I can’t believe that it is time for Cinco De Mayo already!! This sounds like an amazing salsa to make up! I love dipping chips in dips its my favorite part about Mexican food and cuisine!
With the nice weather here and all the events coming up such as mother’s day and memorial day, this would be the prefect recipe to go with our BBQs. I love mangos and I can see myself just eating this a salad. The combination of ingredients look very appealing to go with steak, chicken or even fish. I will be saving this recipe and using it on the near future.
The salsa looks fantastic! I think a salsa like this would be a great idea for dinner parties, barbecues and picnics. We’ll be having a housewarming party next week. I should make sure to use your salsa recipe! All of your food pictures look great, by the way!
I love Salsa so much! And since we are having a Fight party this weekend, this is perfect! And now you have me thinking of where I can ask the hubby to hang a hammock in the backyard! This weather is perfect for it!
This looks delicious and definitely perfect for Cinco de Mayo and any other time for that matter. I love dips and ways to take a chip or tortilla to the next level and this salsa looks perfect for just that. Thanks so much for sharing!

This looks so delicious and so easy to make, I can not believe how the last few days of April were like in the UK we literally had the best warm weathers ever and thats saying a lot for the UK as its always gray and raining. I have not made anything salsa before but thanks for the recipe I might just try it out.
Sadly my love for avocados did not begin until well into my thirties, isn’t that sad?! Now I am all about avocados, love it on or in everything. This recipe looks like a great summer treat. I am excited to add it to our next party, thank you for sharing.
I can already feel the tropical in summer. This salsa is just amazing! Everything compliments each other. And I love avocado. It really is summer with this dish. Great one!
