Chunky Rainbow Salsa: Recipe of the Week



Recipe from the Beachbody Blog.

With warmer weather rapidly approaching, we are all thinking about grilling out more regularly, attending neighborhood parties, going on vacations, and spending lots of time by the pool. With all of these celebrations, it’s easy to over-indulge and regret it later. An easy tip I use to keep myself on track with my health and fitness is to bring one of my own dishes to share. That way, I know all of the ingredients, and I am in complete control of what goes in my body! {Type A personality here!}

This is one of my fave recipes to take to a summer party! It’s quick. It’s healthy. It’s SIMPLE!!! And, my bowl is always EMPTY within minutes! It’s easy to #tastetherainbow with this vibrantly colored salsa made with tomato, mango, avocado and bell peppers. #fitfuel #payfitforwardwithBigD


Total Time: 15 min. Prep Time: 15 min. Cooking Time: None

Yield: 8 servings, about ⅓ cup each


1 medium tomato, coarsely chopped {*I use 2 tomatoes}
1 medium green (or red or yellow) bell pepper, coarsely chopped
1 medium mango, peeled, cut into ¾-inch cubes {*if you can’t find a ripe mango, frozen works great, too}
1 medium red onion, coarsely chopped {*I use only ½ onion; personal preference}
3 fresh cilantro sprigs, finely chopped
2 Tbsp. fresh lime juice
1 medium avocado, cut into ¾-inch cubes




Combine tomato, bell pepper, mango, onion, cilantro, and lime juice in a medium bowl; mix well.

Gently fold in avocado.

Serve immediately.


*** Want to make it spicy? Add finely chopped jalapeño or habanero. Serve with baked corn tortilla chips; eat as a side salad; or spoon over grilled fish, chicken, or pork chops.
