Monday Menus: Coconut Rice and Mango Avocado Salsa

Mangos and Avocados are a little cheaper than usual this time of year and that means it’s time to make one of for my one my favorite dinners. Here it is:

Avocado Mango Salsa:
Dice one avocado, 1-2 roma tomatoes, and one mango
1/2 cup chopped cilantro
1/4 c. onion, diced
Juice of one lime (or lemon juice if that’s what you have)
Several dashes Frank’s Red Hot sauce ( or whatever else you have to add some degree of hotness)
salt and garlic salt to taste

I sort of made it up. I hate store bought mango salsa, But this stuff. . . I could eat the WHOLE BOWL. . . . . .Myself.

Especially with this Coconut Rice to go with it.

Coconut Rice
1 1/2 cups rice (Jasmine is best)
1 3/4 cup water
1 can Coconut Milk
1 tsp. salt
1 Tbsp. sugar
more chopped cilantro leaves

Bring to boil and simmer for 20 minutes.

Serve with it up with Black Beans and Tortilla chips on the side. And if you really want to feast. . .

Grill up some Pineapple and Teriyaki Chicken Kabobs too.

I am a big sweet and salty fan and for me this meal is as good as it gets.
