It doesn’t seem like it but, by all intents and purposes, this is a fruit salad, mostly. I think most people forget that avocados (like tomatoes) are a fruit. I think it’s because of what we are used to having them in–guacamole, tacos, etc. This mango avocado salad is hearty and just slightly spicy from the Cilantro Lime Dressing.
2 mangos, cubed 2 avocados, cubed ¼ cup red cabbage, chopped Cilantro Lime Dressing
First thing you want to do is cube your mangos. You should watch my video on How to Cut a Mango for that. If you are looking for other mango recipe ideas, try this Spicy Mango Popsicle!
Now you basically want to do the same thing to the avocado. I have a video here on How to Safely Pit an Avocado. Something to consider with the avocados for this recipe. You want them to be just ripe. If they are overly ripe, they will get all mushy when you are getting your salad tossed (I had to say it that way). So you want them firm but ripe to avoid this.
Now add the 2 mangos cubed, 2 avocados cubed, 1/4 cup chopped red cabbage and just enough dressing to coat.
How yummy does that look?
