Experience a burst of sense-awakening tropical flavours, and a mix of exotic textures with this salad. Fruity, sweet, creamy and tangy, all in one bowl. I am sure by now, my love affair with Avocado is unabashedly apparent. It’s not like you need another avocado recipe – well actually why not? You can’t get too much of a good thing right? I certainly can’t and the proof is right here and here.

I call this dish my African-style mango and avocado salsa because this is one sure way to experience tropical Africa on your palate. You know how feta cheese plus olives gives a dish a characteristic Greek signature right? Well, this is how I feel about Mangoes and Avocados. Not only did I grow up on those two back home, but they are immensely popular across Africa, with an impressive portion of the landscape of sub-saharan Africa festooned with mango trees.

This salsa is incredibly easy to make – just chop, mix and serve. couldn’t be easier right? As a bonus, it’s very healthy, plus low in calories and sugar and a perfect addition to a diabetic diet. Incredibly versatile, you can also enjoy this also in a sandwich or wrap. And so, on that note, I’m gonna wrap this up and get on to the recipe.
