Summer is here, I can’t say it enough. Most people who live in the mid-west can understand that with the 4th of July holiday, seems to come the peak of summer and then the gradual descent of warm sunny days into autumn, another favorite season of so many. Salads are on the minds of many of us, particularly during the dog days of summer when the temperatures and humidity are high and the moments of daylight linger long into the warm evening air. This mango and avocado salad is cool, fresh, and delicious. It’s also as simple as can be and as such, not a bad combination for any season.
With this little side, the two super fruits of mango and avocado team up to do what they do best; provide some awesome nutrition with a complimentary flavor and texture. As an added bonus for your table setting, the color of this salad is replete of all things summer. Bright, yellow sunshine from the mango and the lush green of summer from the creamy avocado help make this a summer salad come onto its own.
With minimal ingredients and maximum flavor and visual flare, you can put this together for guests or just yourself – it’s a winner for either platform. Add some color to your fireworks and try this salad, I can’t wait to hear your thoughts on this one. -Dan
