This avocado salsa recipe is fresh, flavorful, and SO easy to make! Serve it with tortilla chips for a zesty summer appetizer, or add it to tacos and more.
This avocado salsa recipe is kinda like a mashup of two of my favorite things: mango salsa and guac. So naturally, I’m obsessed with it. It’s a super simple recipe – you can make it in all of 10 minutes! – but it still packs in a ton of contrasting textures and flavors. Creamy avocado plays off sweet, juicy mango, which in turn accents spicy chiles, crisp red onion, and cilantro. A big squeeze of lime juice adds the perfect zesty pop.
I love to serve it as a fun, fresh appetizer with tortilla chips, but this avocado salsa is great in other ways, too. You can stuff it into tacos or spoon it over nachos. I even like it on top of a black bean burger! Easy, versatile, and delicious, it’s a recipe you’ll want on repeat all summer long.
Avocado Salsa Recipe Ingredients
You need 8 simple ingredients to make this avocado salsa recipe:
- Avocado, of course! Look for ones that are ripe, but still a little bit firm so that they hold their shape when you mix them with the other ingredients.
- Mango – I especially love Ataulfo mangoes here, but any variety will do.
- Fresh cilantro – It adds pretty green flecks and bold, fresh flavor.
- Red onion – It gives the salsa a subtle bite and adds crunch.
- A jalapeño or serrano pepper – For heat.
- Ground cumin – For earthy flavor.
- Lime juice – Freshly squeezed, please! It makes the salsa taste SO zesty and bright.
- And sea salt – To make all the flavors pop!

Place all the ingredients in a medium bowl, and stir to combine. Season to taste, and serve. It’s that easy! I love that you don’t need a blender or food processor to make this one.

Do you know if it would work to use frozen avocado and/or frozen mango?
Hi Jane, frozen avocado gets brown as it thaws so I’d probably save frozen avocado for smoothies. I think frozen mango would make this watery, so I’d suggest fresh! I haven’t tried either though.
great idea for a salad, because they don’t always have to be filled with heaps of lettuce! Love avocadoes nice pairing with mango and other ingredients too
