Grilled mango and avocado salsa

I made this salsa to go on some rib eye's I grilled on the BBQ, but this salsa is a very versatile condiment.  It can be used on most types of fish, chicken, all kinds of meats, in tacos or just eat it with chips.  Other than the grilling of the mango it is a very quick recipe and if you have a gas grill even the mango will not take that long. 

Recipe:  1 mango, ripe
               1 avocado
               3 Roma tomatoes
               1 lime
               1 small jalapeno
               1/8 cup cilantro chopped from the leaves
               salt and pepper to taste

Peel the mango and cut it up into large slices or pieces so you can put them on your grill to caramelize cook the mango on all sides with the grill on high (be careful that you do not burn the mango) once they are done put in a bowl in the fridge to cool down after they are cool cut them into medium size chunks
Cut up the tomatoes and avocado's into small cubes add them to the mango, zest the lime and add it to the bowl.  Cut the lime in half and squeeze one of the halves into the tomato and avocado mixture (I usually start with half of the lime and then add more if it needs it depending on how you like the flavor) add the cilantro to the bowl with all the other ingredients.  cut up the jalapeno into very small pieces (you can decide how spicy you want your salsa by the amount of jalapeno you add and whether or not you use the seeds, the seeds contain the majority of the spice in them so be careful if you do not want it to be super spicy) then salt and pepper to taste (I like to use kosher medium coarse salt and fresh ground pepper) stir all the ingredients together and taste so you can adjust you salt, pepper and lime.
