Mango and avocado salsa - my entry for the Ryvita Challenge

Do you like the look of this mango and avocado salsa? It's a creamy, guacamole-style avocado dip with chilli and lots of fresh herbs (basil, mint and coriander), beautiful sweet chunks of ripe, juicy mango, and lashings of zesty lime goodness.

If you do like it, please click HERE to vote for me in the Ryvita Challenge (the challenge being to create a winning dip to accompany new Ryvita Thins). It'll only take a second (you just have to click an option on a poll) and your help would mean a lot to me.

Thank you!

(Should you want the recipe too, read on.)

Zesty lime, mango and avocado salsa:

A large handful of basil, mint and coriander (about 20g each) - save a few leaves for garnishing
1 red chilli, deseeded and roughly chopped (or half a chilli if you're not keen on spice!)
3 very ripe avocadoes, stone removed and flesh scooped out with a spoon
2 tbsp sour cream or yoghurt
2 tomatoes, roughly chopped
Juice and zest of 1 lime
1/2 tsp salt
1 ripe mango

Put the herbs and chilli in a food processor and blitz until finely chopped. Add the tomatoes, avocadoes, sour cream or yoghurt, lime juice and zest, and salt, and blitz until you have a fairly chunky purée. Taste and season - you may want a little more salt, herbs or lime juice. (If you don't have a food processor, finely chop the herbs, chilli and tomato by hand, then use a fork or whisk to mash them together with the avocado, sour cream/yoghurt, lime and salt.)

Peel and chop the mango into 5mm cubes. Stir into the avocado mixture, reserving a few mango pieces to scatter over the top. Garnish with a little extra chilli and/or herbs, and serve immediately.

  4. Looks like a lovely salsa, although I'm a bit dubious about the Ryvita! Do you eat them? I'd rather have it on a loaf of bread, or failing that, a homemade savoury biscuit of some sort. Will still vote for you though :-)

  5. This looks lovely. Nice and fresh. Thank you for following me - am following back.
