1/4 C. minced red onion

1 Garlic clove, minced fine

1/4 C. minced cilantro

2 Jalapeno peppers, seeded and minced (optional)

Sea salt to taste

In a medium glass bowl (not metal), mix the diced avocado, diced mango, lime juice, jalapenos, onion, garlic, cilantro, salt, and pepper. Store in a covered container in the refrigerator for at least 30 minutes, but no more than 1 hour before serving. The fruit will begin to "cook" in the lime juice and become soggy.
