Dish #407 - Avocado & Mango Salsa

Avocados are a creamy, buttery fruit grown in warm climates and often enjoyed in Mexican and South American cuisine.
Last weekend we had been to Coorg, and my friend gave me some fresh Avocados grown in their own estate...In India its commonly known as "Butter fruit"
Also known as an alligator pear or butter fruit, the versatile avocado is the only fruit that provides a substantial amount of monounsaturated fat (the healthy kind). Avocados are a naturally nutrient-dense food and contain nearly 20 vitamins and minerals.
The avocado is a rather unique type of fruit.
Most fruit consists primarily of carbohydrate, while avocado is high in healthy fats.
These days, the avocado has become an incredibly popular food among health conscious individuals. It is often referred to as a "Super food"… which is not surprising given its health properties.
I personally love Avocado milkshake but now I decided to try some new dishes with them.
This dish is the first of them and incredibly delicious. This Salsa can be eaten by itself or served as a side dish with any grilled vegetable or sea food.

Avocado - 1 - peeled, pitted and diced
Lime - 1 - juiced
Mango - 1 - peeled, seeded and diced
Red Onion - 1 - chopped
Red bell pepper - 1/2 - seeded and chopped
Fresh Cilantro/Coriander - 1 handful - chopped
Salt to taste

Place the avocado in a serving bowl, and mix with the lime juice. Mix in the mango, onion, red bell pepper, cilantro and salt.
If you want to store for a while before serving, cover with a cling film so that the avocados do not change color and remain fresh.
