This avocado mango salad recipe has been with my family for years, so I thought I’d dig it out of the blog archives and give it a little revamping just in time for summer! It’s packed with fruits and veggies and has a sweet yet savory dressing. Basically…this salad has an identify crisis, but it’s a delicious crisis that I’ll be devouring all summer.

Ingredients to make yogurt salad dressing

We’ll make the dressing for the salad first.  A lot of the fruits and veggies in this salad turn brown quickly after you cut them, so we want to minimize the time between chopping and digging in.  You can whisk all the dressing ingredients together or shake them up in a jar (great for keeping any leftover!)

Once that’s done, gather up an avocado, a large apple, mangos, and carrots. Shred the carrots and chop everything else up into cubes.

How to cut mango for a salad

These are slippery suckers and can be hard to cut.  First peel the skin using a vegetable peeler (Fun Fact: The peel of the mango is highly allergenic to many people. To avoid ending up with big swollen lips, always peel these guys).  

Once peeled, find the stem of the mango and look down the fruit, there are two equal halves around the weirdly oblong seed. Cut the mango by cutting off the two “cheeks” around the seed. Then just dice up the cheeks into perfect cubes! (More on mangoes here!)

    I made this today for a friend and myself. It’s amazing. The cinnamon in the dressing clinches it. It will be my favourite summer salad. 😊

      Yay! So happy to hear Marion! I was afraid the cinnamon in a savory-ish dish would be a deal breaker for some. Happy it worked for you! 😀
