Mango & Avocado Salsa

My husband liked this salsa over chicken so much, he told me the dinner was one of his "Top 2 Favorite Dinners Ever".  Serve this over chicken or fish or as a taco topping.  Because it is mostly fruits and vegetables, one serving has less than 100 calories and lots of "good" fats.  Thanks Martha Stewart Food for this great recipe.


Recipe Notes
Make this immediately before serving so that the avocado doesn't start to turn brown.  Also, I think that one of the keys to the red onion is the fine dice - mince as small as possible.
