Salsa Slicing and Chopping Tips


First, you will need to slice the avocado in half length wise creating two equal halves. Next, you will need to remove the large seed using either a spoon or knife. Once the seed is removed use your knife to slice the inside of the avocado vertically creating slices. Next, slice horizontally to create small squarish shapes. Finally, use your spoon to scoop the inside out of the peel and place it in your bowl and repeat on the other half. Moral of the story: cut the avocado into small pieces.


First you will need to cut the mango in half. There is a large seed inside of the center of a mango, so you will need to cut off center. Once you have two halves you will slice the mango exactly like the avocado.

Red Pepper

First, you will want to remove the stem and cut the red pepper in half. Next, use your knife to remove the light colored ribs on the inside and discard along with the seeds. Finally chop the red pepper into small squares. Don’t worry about the cuts being perfect it will still taste yummy I promise!

Red Onion

Okay, so full disclaimer I cut onions the “wrong” way. But, it is easier for me and I refuse to change my ways. If you want to know the correct way to slice an onion you can easily find a billion videos on YouTube about it. 


If you want a spicy kick to your salsa you will definitely want to add some fresh jalapeno! You will slice the jalapeno just like the pepper removing the stem, ribs and seeds then slicing it into small pieces.


First, I like to remove the leaves from the stems. Next, I use a knife to rough chop the cilantro into smaller pieces. You can also use your hands and just tear into small pieces.

Common Mango Avocado Salsa Recipe Questions

How Long Does Mango Avocado Salsa Stay Good For?

Stored in an airtight container in the fridge the mango avocado salsa will stay fresh for up to two days. Any longer than that and the flavor of the salsa starts to get weird. I suggest making only what you will eat to avoid food waste and it spoiling fast. The mango avocado salsa is best immediately after making it!

Serving Suggestions for this Mango Avocado Salsa

I love eating this mango avocado salsa with chips, on top of tacos, quesadillas or over the top of a salad. If you are looking for a wonderful main dish to pair this with try these Crockpot Pork Carnitas Tacos!

Can I add in different fruits and veggies?

Sure! Just know that any changes you make to the mango avocado salsa recipe will result in the flavor being altered. Some things you could try is adding in orange pepper instead of red pepper, or a spicier pepper if you want more heat. Also, if you loathe cilantro you could leave it out completely, or cut the suggested amount in half.
