Mango-Avocado Salsa

I made black bean and rice burritos last night for dinner, and this salsa to go inside them. For lunch, I got the bright idea to also spead a little cream cheese inside the tortilla - that was pretty smart! It was de-lish, and good training for what might be a pescetarian summer for me.

1 mango, peeled and diced
1 avocado, peeled and diced
1/3 cup diced red onion
2 jalapenos, seeded and finely diced
1/4 cup roughly-chopped cilantro
juice of 1/2 lime

Combine all ingredients and refrigerate for at least a half hour to let the onion and cilantro mellow. Great in burritos, on chicken or fish, or just tortilla chips.

PS - If youre unsure of how best to deal with a mango, slashfood just happened to link to this great illustrated guide today.
