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. :)

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.

Avocado ~ Home grown ripe mangoes

In a bowl, whisk 1 crushed garlic, a tbsp of lemon juice, a tbsp of olive oil, salt and crushed pepper to taste and a tbsp of honey. Add 1 peeled and sliced ripe mango, 1 peeled and sliced avocado, 1 sliced red bell pepper and washed and torn lettuce. Toss well till combined with dressing. Serve chilled garnished with basil or coriander leaves.

    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

      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.

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

    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!
