Mango Strawberry Avocado Salad

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.

Mango Fruit Salad

These mangoes were the best I’ve ever tasted…soft, sweet, juicy. Perfectly ripened. I received two varieties,Tommy Atkins and Altaulfo. The smaller, deeper fleshed fruit even had some spicy undertones…phenomenal.

The mango mixed with ripe strawberries and succulent pineapple resulted in ambrosial fruit tri-fecta. I realize that avocados are also fruit, but instead of providing sweetness, they offered the ultimate creaminess while the jicama gave a nice neutral crunch. This mango strawberry avocado salad was a party in my mouth.

A healthy party, too. It was wonderful to bring a taste of the tropics to good ol’ Indiana. I hope this bowl of rainbow hued fruit has inspired you to add some mangoes to your shopping cart!

If you have any leftover mangoes, I recommend this raspberry mango salsa.

Skinny Tip

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.

  1. 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?

  2. I love mangoes. They make everything taste better. Thanks, Liz!

  3. 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!

  4. 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!

  5. 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!

  6. 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 ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Have a lovely weekend ahead dear friend.

  7. I adore this recipe! The idea of adding avocado with these fruits must taste lovely! Gorgeous, Hugs, Terra

  8. 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!).

  9. 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 ๐Ÿ˜€

  10. Best fruit salad ever…love the avocado in there!!

  11. Great salad, Liz. I love throwing fruit into a green salad. I have a recent affinity for mangoes, too.

  12. All the wonderful fruits in one bowl – who am I to say no?! Looks good, tastes good ๐Ÿ™‚

  14. 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. ๐Ÿ™‚ Your fruit salad look gorgeous!

  15. This is the kind of salad that I could sit and eat all day long. Love!

  16. What a summery and delicious salad, the avocado and strawberry is a favourite of mine ๐Ÿ˜€
