Just a few days ago summer officially began. To help welcome in those warm days and nights I have an amazing recipe to share with you! This is yet another one from the archives, I did warn you! But it's one more that just couldn't be skipped. Juicy mango and bright green avocados add delightful color and a wonderful flavor combination to this refreshing summer salad and the tangy citrus accents add the ideal finishing touch. It's a light and simple dish and I believe it will make for the perfect side to any meal during these warmer months. I have a real love for this salad since it's a great mix of sweet and savory plus it's fun and colorful too which makes me it would be just right to throw in a Tupperware container for a family picnic or BBQ.
