Mango Salsa

  • Mix all the ingredients together in a bowl, chill in fridge, and allow the flavours to marry.

  • Set aside until you are ready to build your burger.

Burger Patties

  • In a bowl, mix all the ingredients together.
  • Shape into 4 patties, use your thumb to press a little indentation in the middle of your patty.
  • Then grill on each side for 3-4 minutes or until cooked through.

Assembling burger

  • Build your burger with generous serving of guacamole, patty, and top with mango salsa.
  • Serve immediately.


Try not to make your guacamole too early as your avocados will oxidise and turn brown.
If you are making ahead of time, place a seed into your guacamole mix, and cover bowl tightly with cling wrap.
