Mango Strawberry Avocado Salad
Mango Strawberry Avocado Salad is an irresistible combination that’s hard to beat! A healthy, tropical salad, it’s packed full of nutrients!
With a tropical flair, this Mango Salad is a delightful addition to your summer menu or whenever you can find juicy ripe mangoes!
Why You Must Make
- If mangos are new to your family, this is a tasty, easy recipe to introduce them.
- The simple citrus salad dressing pairs wonderfully with fruit.
- You can add whatever summer fruit you love. The ingredients are easily adaptable. Grapes and bananas would work well, too, but add bananas at the last minute so they don’t oxidize or turn brown before serving.
- Even though mangos contain lots of sugar, this is a much healthier snack than cookies, candies, etc.
Being a food blogger does have some perks. Like the bottle of rum that appeared at my doorstep this afternoon. And the package of fresh mangoes that arrived over the weekend.
When I asked my Facebook friends for their favorite mango recipes, I was inundated with suggestions. Taking bits and pieces from a variety of sources, I came up with my own Mango Strawberry Avocado Salad. This vibrant dish was an incredible combination of flavors and textures.
These mangoes were the best I’ve ever tasted…soft, sweet, and juicy. Perfectly ripened. I received two varieties, Tommy Atkins and Altaulfo. The smaller, deeper fleshed fruit even had some spicy undertones…phenomenal.
- Feel free to add whatever fruit you enjoy. I went for those with a taste of the tropics with my selections.
- Make sure your mangoes are ripe and fragrant for the best results.
- Adding avocados didn’t add more sweetness, but instead the ultimate creaminess.
- Jicama provided a nice neutral crunch.
- Don’t be put off by a pinch of salt. Salt is a flavor enhancer to any recipe whether sweet or savory.
- If you have any leftover mangoes, I recommend this raspberry mango salsa. It’s delicious paired with tortilla chips.
Frequently Asked Questions
Mangos are high in Vitamin C and fiber along with Vitamin K, Magnesium, and Potassium. They’re also loaded with antioxidants so may have anti-cancer effects, and help with immune function and inflammatory diseases. Some of these nutrients will also promote skin and eye health.
This can be challenging as mangos have thick skin and a large pit. Hold your mango vertically and carefully slice downwards along the pit. Repeat until all the flesh is removed.
Then, slice a crosshatch or grid pattern into each slice, scoop out the flesh and cut these pieces into cubes if needed.
It will give when you press it gently. It shouldn’t feel mushy, though, as then it is over-ripe. The color will also change from green to orange, red, or rosy color. You may also catch a sweet, fruity aroma when a mango is ripe.

I’m starting a new series of Skinny Tips. How I keep slim is one of my most frequent inquiries. I’ll feature tips on some of my upcoming blog posts.
Tip #20: Take the stairs. It is often quicker than waiting for an elevator and you’ll get a great quad workout, along with your calves and gluts. Who doesn’t need firmer thighs and tush? When I worked as an oncology nurse on the 7th floor of the hospital, I always took the stairs…even when I was 9 months pregnant. Start slowly, then as your endurance improves, pick up your pace.

This is the kind of salad that I could sit and eat all day long. Love!
Mangoes are one of my favorite fruits all year round. My favorite way to eat them is peeled and then straight off the seed, juice dripping off my elbows. 🙂 Your fruit salad look gorgeous!
Gah! I need this bowl of summery deliciousness, now 😀
All the wonderful fruits in one bowl – who am I to say no?! Looks good, tastes good 🙂
Great salad, Liz. I love throwing fruit into a green salad. I have a recent affinity for mangoes, too.
Best fruit salad ever…love the avocado in there!!
Mangos are amazing, when they are in season I always have a stash of them in the fridge, they are perfect for brightening up a fruit salad and they are also great for calming down that sweet craving when it hits far tastier and healthier then a chocolate bar 😀
I feel healthier just by looking at these gorgeous, bright, vibrant photos, Liz! As for the stairs – the last time I ran up a set, I was wheezing ‘n gasping like I was dying. It was horrible. I REALLY need to get in shape (especially after the latte, muffin and burrito combo meal I scarfed down today!).
I adore this recipe! The idea of adding avocado with these fruits must taste lovely! Gorgeous, Hugs, Terra
Lizzy, what a beautiful and refreshing salad. Food Blogging certainly does have its perks…it’s so much fun getting new toys to cook/bake with 😉
Have a lovely weekend ahead dear friend.
This is a great salad for summer grilling nights! Totally eliminates any cooking in the kitchen and will go with just about anything. Very tasty salad Liz!
That bowl of fruit looks YUMMY! I always prefer the stairs over elevators. For seven years, I worked in a building where they kept the stairwell locked. You could get out on the bottom floor, but you couldn’t come in that way or go between floors. It was their version of “security” because supposedly vagrants don’t take elevators–they hang out in stairs. I hated it!
I love this super tropical and summery salad Liz! I could eat this for days. I could totally do the bottle of rum appearing haha!
I love mangoes. They make everything taste better. Thanks, Liz!
What a great salad, and I love avocado in such recipes too, they do go well with mango. So where is the rum in the recipe then too lol?
