Avocado Mango Salad

1 nice looking mango? Check.

1 handsome avocado? Check.

A little red onion? Yup.

Okay then….

Well it’s way to warm to cook anything so lets make a summer salad and serve it with a few little open sandwiches for dinner shall we?

This has become one of our favourite salads during the last few summers.

Mangos are plentiful and avocados are everywhere.

I made this for the first time several years back and served it with chicken schnitzel.  It has since made an appearance on the dinner table many times (though we no longer eat meat so it’s now served as the main part of our meal).

It’s really simple:-

1 ripe (but not soft) mango – peeled and cut into bite size pieces

1 ripe (but not too mushy) avocado – peeled and cut into bite size pieces

2 Tblsp finely diced red onion

2 Tblsp fresh lemon or lime juice

2 Tblsp olive oil

a few sprigs fresh mint – finely chopped

a little (or a lot) of very finely diced red chilli

a sprinkle of sea salt

a scattering of pomegranate seeds (optional)

Here’s the difficult part….

Gently toss all the above ingredients in a bowl or on a serving dish.

Serve…

And because it was 42 o C today, we had little open cheese, tomato, cucumber, beetroot and basil sandwiches (and a chilled glass of white wine).

Dinner was definitely good.

Enjoy…

  1. Yum! As a kid mum used to make mango, walnut and chicken salad with a curry Mayo dressing that was always delicious. I love the sound of theses flavours together a lot too, sounds summery fresh.

  2. Just enjoyed a BBQ chicken satay with the mango and avocado salad as well as a tomato and coriander salsa – brilliant combo!
    Thanks for the recipe Lona!
