Quick Summer Meals ~ Avocado Mango Salad

A chef friend sourced and gifted me some hard to find produce (in Vizag) like broccoli, bell peppers, cherry tomatoes, lettuce, basil and parsley. ๐Ÿ™‚

Prepared a simple, colorful and flavorful salad using avocado and ripe mango for lunch today. Refreshing with combination of textures – both avocado and mango being creamy, and lettuce providing a bit of crunch, the salad has a mingling of savory and sweet flavors. Perfect hot weather salad that is simply outstanding. One of the best refreshing salads I have had in recent times.

  1. Looks great. where do you get Avocados in India..esp Vizag? I was telling my mother about avocado recipes and how much we started loving them here but could never get them taste it. A nice guacamole would be the best dip for corn chips or papad or even as a spread for a toasted bread slice!
    Nice use of mangoes and avocados here.
    Cheers

    1. A chef friend sourced them for me, Josh. Never available locally. Avocado is grown in Kodaikanal region in Tamil Nadu. Its available in Bangalore and Chennai markets on a regular basis.

  2. This is mouth watering! You are lucky to have homegrown mangoes, here in US we get mangoes that are neither sweet nor juicy.

  3. I liked the color combination n tried this at home today…Can I post this in my blog and link back to this page…waiting to here 4m u so that I can post it..Thanks for the colorful recipe ๐Ÿ™‚

  7. Hi Sailu,

    I am extremely curious. Where in Vizag or Vijayawada would I find Avocados? I didn’t think I could find them in India, and apparently I am wrong.

    Thanks!
