Mango and Avocado Salad

Mango Avocado Salad

Salads are a perfect addition to your meals or can also serve as a meal itself.  And now that it so easy to find mangoes you don’t have to wait for the summer to make this salad. Hope you enjoy making this as much as you enjoy eating it.

Mango and Avocado Salad

Ingredients

Mango -1 small
Avocado-1 ripened
Red onion- diced 1 tsp
Lemon- Juice of ½ a lemon
Olive oil – 1 tbsp.
Salt to taste
Black Pepper to taste
Coriander - a few sprigs (optional)

Serves:  2 as a salad/ side

Method:


Make the dressing by combining juice of lemon, olive oil, Red onion, finely chopped coriander and season to taste with salt and black pepper (if you find red onion too sharp leave the dressing aside for a few minutes, I however don’t mind it).
To cut the avocado, cut diagonally through twist and remove the seed, using a spoon scoop out little pieces of avocado into the dressing.
Add in diced mango toss and serve!
Delicious on its own or as a side!  If you wish you can also add some cooked prawn or lobster to it.


Tips for presentation: I placed  a ring mould in the centre of a plate added salad to it and pushed it with a fork, removed the mould and covered it with cucumber peels  and of course  a little mint never hurts.
