Fresh Mango Avocado & Navy Bean Salsa

I don't really like spicy salsa that you would eat with chips. I would much rather have a fresh fruit medley like this one.  This salsa came about because I had a mango that was about to go bad and an avocado that was about to go bad. Thats it. I put the two fruits together, added a can of navy beans, and lime juice and salt. Fresh and perfect. You could serve this as a side to anything, or on top of anything, or just as a cool fresh snack.
Do you want to know how I used it? Thats right. Right on top of a fried egg. The yellow yoke covered sweet mango and avocado was absolutely amazing. You might guess this was for breakfast, but it was actually for dinner and was so satisfying.


Mango Avocado & Navy Bean Salsa
2 Avocado
1 Mango
1/4 cup red onion, chopped
1/2 cup navy beans
Lime juice
salt 'n' peppa

1- Peel and cube the mango and avocado.
2 - Rinse navy beans from can. Throw into a large bowl with cubed mango and avocado, pour in juice of one lime, season to taste. Serve over whatever you like!

Avocado and mango is a great combo. Sweet, juicy and creamy! I often combine them with black beans for a salsa.

Avocados facts said...

Seems like something yummy is always cooking in your house. Looks delicious. I am surely gonna try it. I like avocado. Avocado is very healthy and has many health benefits. It is rich in nutrients and is excellent as conditioner and makes one’s locks lustrous and smooth, it helps to get rid of the frizz from hair, also helps preventing hair loss and its nutrients helps for good hair growth.
