Mango and avocado salsa

Spring is just around the corner and summer is near! In honor of the beautiful Georgia weather, I decided to make one of my favorite summer salsas this weekend.  This recipe is so good it’s definitely worth sharing! I hope you enjoy it as much as my family and I do!

Ingredients:

3 avocados (thinly sliced)

1 Red bell pepper (diced)

1 mango (diced)

1/3 cup red onion (diced)

1 clove garlic (mined)

3 tablespoons cilantro (or to taste)

Juice of half a lime

Sea salt (to taste)

Freshly ground black pepper (to taste)

Olive oil

    1. Heat a pan over med-high heat and drizzle some olive oil in the pan. Place the sliced avocado on the pan and cook a couple minutes on each side until slightly charred. Take the avocado off the heat and let them cool. Cooking the avocado gives this dish a delicious buttery texture that is soo good!
