About the recipe

Spring has sprung so why not start it right with my mango and avocado salsa?

When paired with skillet chicken and a generous helping of rice, this easy salsa strikes the sweetest balance.

It’s perfect for those spring and summer months when you want a quick and refreshing dinner or lunch.

How long can I store the salsa for?

Store mango and avocado salsa in an airtight container in the fridge.

Eat within two days.

How will I know if the chicken is cooked?

You’ll know the chicken is cooked when it’s white all the way through.

You can check this by putting a knife in the middle and taking a peek.

Or pulling the knife out and testing if the knife tip is piping hot.

I prefer the first method as it’s more fool proof and reliable.

What else can I pair the salsa with?

Avocado and mango salsa is very versatile.

However I’d personally pair it with something savoury as the tang of the lime really gives it a kick.

You can spruce up a salad or create a zesty cous cous.

For a vegetarian/vegan option, replace the chicken with falafel.
