Here’s a light summer salad with a delicious twist! This spicy mango avocado salad is a great appetizer or side dish. Or serve with grilled chicken or shrimp for a hearty meal. It’s a quick and easy dish that’s sure to impress.
This spicy mango avocado salad gets the heat from Habanero peppers. This is a particularly spicy chili. (100,000 to 350,000 Scoville heat units) should be very hot. Instead, if you want to add some fruit to your salad without reducing the heat, trade in the habanero for a slightly sweeter (but no less spicy) pepper. Want to see the difference? Read our PepperScale confrontation about two peppers.
If you want to reduce the spiciness, consider using red jalapenos or red serrano peppers. Both of these peppers are medium heat tolerant peppers. And their red form tastes sweeter than bright grasses when using green. You want that sweetness because it pairs so well with the mango. Yes, they don’t have a fruity smell like Habanero or Scotch Bonnet. But of course they taste less spicy.
