Mango Avocado Salsa


I'm always on a mission to indulge Alex's sweet tooth, while also appeasing my savory craving self. I am a huge fan of salsa and guacamole, but recently I've been making a lot of fruit salsa with pineapple, strawberries and mango. I thought that combining this idea with my favorite avocado salsa would taste amazing, and I was right! 
I started by marinating some finely diced red onion in orange juice and red wine vinegar. This pulls the intense flavor from the onion and adds a bit of a citrusy bite. I also added some creamy avocado, fresh cilantro, sweet mango and a bit of lime juice. I combined this delicious salsa with homemade whole wheat tortilla chips, they turned out to be a match made in heaven.

Mango Avocado Salsa

Ingredients:
1/4 red onion, finely diced
2 tbsp orange juice
1 tbsp red wine vinegar
1 tbsp cilantro, minced
1 mango, diced
1 avocado, diced
kosher salt

Directions:
Start by placing the finely diced red onion into a small bowl along with the orange juice and red wine vinegar. Allow them to marinate for 30 minutes. 
In another small bowl, combine the marinated red onion, the cilantro, the diced mango, and the diced avocado along with a bit of kosher salt. Carefully toss the ingredients with a spoon until the mixture is uniform.

Wheat Tortilla Chips

Ingredients:
4 wheat tortilla shells
1/2 cup olive oil
kosher salt

Directions:
In a large saute pan over medium heat, place the olive oil and allow it to heat for a few minutes. Meanwhile, slice the tortilla shells into eighths. Place the triangles into the hot oil a few at a time, turning them after a minute and allowing them to cook for another minute on the other side until they're golden. Place the cooked chips onto a paper towel and sprinkle them with a bit of salt.
