Citrus Mango Avocado Salad Recipe


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. 


Citrus Mango Avocado Salad:
Makes about 4-6 Adult Size Servings

Ingredients:

2 Large Avocados, Chopped Large
1 Mango Cubed
1/2 Cup Canned Crushed Pineapple
1 Shallot, Chopped Small
3 Teaspoons Vegetable Oil
1 Tablespoon Lime Juice or 1 Half Fresh Lime Squeezed
1 Tablespoon Orange Juice
1 Teaspoon of Sugar
Salt, Pepper, Parsley and Mint to taste.

Method:

1. Chop an avocado and mango into large cubes. Place them in a bowl and refrigerate until ready to serve. 

2. Chop the shallot and then add the crushed pineapple, vegetable oil, lime juice, orange juice, sugar and spices. Whisk to combine. 

3. Pour the dressing mixture over the avocado and mango immediately before serving and mix carefully to bring it all together. 

4. Top each plate with a slice of fresh lime to garnish if you would like.
