Ingredients You’ll Need

Red onion (1/2) – Red onions are a great low-calorie option to add to salads. They also have antibacterial properties to help your body fight off infections.

There are a few alternative ideas if you don’t like red onion’s pungent taste. One option would be to fun the onion through some chilly water. Doing this will take a little bit of the “bite” away.

Mango (1) – It’s best to use a ripe mango for the best flavor. However, suppose you can’t find any fresh mangos. In that case, you can substitute with frozen mango pieces.

Avocado (2) – Avocado is one of the best ingredients of this salad. Use ripe, slightly tender avocados for the best flavor.

English cucumber (1/2) – English cucumbers are the really long cucumbers you find in the store. Don’t worry if you can’t find an English cucumber. Any other type of cucumber will work just fine.

Grape tomatoes (1 cup) – Grape tomatoes are easy to find and incredibly delicious. Also, they are high in fiber and leptin.

Lemon (1) – Lemons provide citrus, acidic flavor without any unnatural ingredients. If you don’t have a lemon handy, you can substitute it with lime or a splash of apple cider vinegar.

Garlic (2 cloves) – Garlic is another great way to add flavor without any unhealthy ingredients.

The garlic can be omitted altogether if you don’t have any around, or you could use a small sprinkle of garlic powder.

Fresh parsley (a handful) – Fresh herbs make any salad better! The fresh parsley makes a big difference in the final taste of this salad. If you want, substitute with another fresh herb like cilantro, basil, or chives.

How to Make Mango Avocado Salad

Step 1. It’s time to cut up all of your fruits and vegetables. When you are cutting a mango, you must remove the fruit from the hard center core. Also, be sure to remove the skins, as well.

Now the salad will be much easier to put together once all of your ingredients are cut up. Make sure that you shake all of the excess water off before putting them in the salad.

Step 2. Next, pour all of the fruits and vegetables into a large bowl. Squeeze the juice from the lemon over all of the ingredients.

Finally, using a garlic press like this, press the garlic into the salad as well. Then you can sprinkle the parsley on top.

Step 3. Now, gently toss all of the ingredients together so that they are all evenly coated.

Step 4. And there you have it! You’ve made this delicious mango avocado salad. Now it’s time to divide it up and serve.

It’s important to remember that this salad is best when served immediately after making it. This is because the avocados will start to oxidize and get brown shortly after they are chopped up.

    Excellent. A couple of suggestions: a second mango and you probably don’t need that much onion.
