Why You Must Make this Tropical Fruit Salad

  • If mangos are new to your family, this is a safe, easy and tasty 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.

Frequently Asked Questions

What are the Health Benefits of Mangos?

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, help with immune function and inflammatory diseases. Some of these nutrients will also promote skin and eye health.

How do you Cut a Mango?

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.

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 trifecta. 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.
