We are gradually starting to have very intimate outdoor gatherings and firing up our grill is definitely part of the family plan for Spring/Summer 2021. I choose to use heart healthy Mazola® Corn Oil as a marinade for grilling and as a base for my salsas and ceviche because a clinical study shows it reduces cholesterol 2x more than extra virgin olive oil.

Like I said it’s grilling season and time to think of better for you meals! This means I will be making my heart healthy Grilled Avocado and Mango Salsa, which is a hybrid between a salsa and a pico de gallo. It’s the perfectly light topper for tacos or an amazing fresh snack to have with chips. I always start off by pouring a few tablespoons of Mazola® Corn Oil into my molcajete along with a splash of lime juice, garlic cloves and a half of roasted bell pepper, then I use the tejolote to grind it into a paste/flavorful base. The Mazola® Corn Oil creates a great-tasting fuller base because it has a neutral taste that lets the flavor of my chunky salsa stand out.

I chop up some grilled avocado, grilled mango, tomatoes, jalapeno, red onion, and cilantro and mix them into my Mazola® Corn Oil paste. It’s seriously the perfect salsa and better for you too! I hope you’ll try the recipe.
