Mango Avocado Salsa Salad

February 4, 2010

~ Mary ~

This is what we need to fill our February with – bold – bright – beautiful – fresh and tasty fruits and vegetables – really don’t they have the ability to transport you to warmer weather!?  This is sort of a dual post – we use this gorgeously satisfying salsa on our Baked Fish Tacos – that recipe is going to follow in the next day or so.

    Bold, bright and beautiful to say the least Mary! Great salad, we eat fresh salad with dinner 6 out of 7 nights a week. Fresh, crisp and deliciously healthy too.

      WAY TO GO Kathy! We’re working on incorparating fresh veggies every night – fruits throughout the day aren’t a problem. I don’t know why veggies are – we like them well enough. ~Mary

    That really does look like summer which I’m missing after this long, dreary winter. Please don’t quote me on that when I start complaining in April that the temperature is already in the 90’s here in Houston. Beautiful recipe as always.

      Houston REALLY Robin? Come back when you’ve spent a winter in Minnesota – then we can ‘talk’ ~Mary

    This looks wonderful! I can get all the ingredients from the fruit truck that has been stopping here twice a week now. I’m waiting for the fish recipe……maybe I can get that from the fish truck.
    I’m just saying, you should take a winter vacation here in Roatan where it’s 80 degrees with a gentle breeze.

    Oh my gosh, I love color in food. Color in food means it’s good for me. I can’t wait to try this.

    Great salad. Very colourful, vibrant. It’s winter and I am more into soups during winter, but for my outdoor barbecues in Summer, this will make my top list for sure. I guess the key thing with such salad is to avoid overwhelming vinegary touch. Probably, barely any dressings is the way to go actually.

    The best!:) love it sooo much!

  22. February 6, 2010 4:36 pm

    The colors are be-yoo-ti-ful!

  23. February 6, 2010 6:35 pm

    I love the colours. So fresh and summery!

  24. February 6, 2010 10:22 pm

    Amazing– oh, how I wish it was summer!!

    We’ve made this recipe at least twice a week since we first tried it!
    Today the neighbors are having a wedding and they’re serving it! Everyone in Roatan that’s tasted it wants the recipe.
    A real winner!

      HAPPY! So glad you liked it. The funny part, we both had the same thing for dinner – only mine was over grilled shark.

    Having this for dinner tonight with Swai fillets. Swai? Yes. I’d never heard of it, either. It’s a delicious fish, though, and I’m sure this salsa will be perfect with it!
