I’ve been working late almost every day the past few weeks, so after hitting the gym at GoodLife Fitness, by the time I get home, I am in no mood to cook. To stick to my health and fitness goals, rather than skip healthy options for something like pizza, I’ve been making one of my go-to favourites – Mango Avocado Salsa. It’s so easy to make – you just need a couple of ingredients.
1 ripe yellow mango
1 avocado (ripe but not too soft)
1 or 2 small roma tomatoes (or a red pepper if you prefer)
1 red onion
What You’ll Need:
1 Large Bowl
Wash the mango and cut it into cubes. Do the same with the avocado. Wash and dry the roma tomatoes and dice them into small chunks. Toss everything into the bowl together. Dice as much red onion as you like and add it to the bowl. (The flavour of red onion can pack a punch so you might want to add a little bit at a time). Finish the recipe off with a squeeze of lemon juice. The lemon juice really brings out all of the flavours of all the ingredients. Gently mix everything together with a large spoon. This salsa recipe is a tad on the sweeter side, but the onion cuts it and gives it a little kick, while the avocado adds a savoury element. You can serve this salsa with tortilla chips, but it would also taste great with chicken or fish tacos. It’s a pretty versatile recipe so you can experiment with it. Switch up the recipe by substituting roma tomatoes for a red pepper, as they both and a touch of sweetness and juice to the recipe.
The past few months, I’ve really stuck to my goal to eat colourfully. I decided that next month I am setting a new fitness goal- check back next month to find out what it is!
