  • 3 Tablespoons lime juice, divided
  • 2 ripe but firm mangoes, peeled and cubed
  • 1 jalapeño, stemmed, seeded and finely chopped
  • 1 Teaspoon grated lime zest

Gently toss avocado with 1 tablespoon of the lime juice in a medium bowl. Add mango and jalapeño and gently toss to combine. Set aside.

Buying fruits in season when they are at the peak of their freshness make for great tasting food and can save you money.

Mango Cooking Tip

Don’t throw out your overripe fruit – instead blend into a smoothie or salad dressing, add to muffin batter, bake into a cobbler, or boil down with sugar and a little lemon juice to make jam.
