I modified a mango and avocado salad we like to make to include citrus. The Sriracha adds some heat and a little agave adds some extra sweet. Any type of orange is good, and I have also made this salad with Meyer lemon supremes. Very good and refreshing! —Bevi

  • Serves 4
  • 1 ripe mango
  • 1 medium chopped red, yellow, or orange bell pepper
  • 1 ripe avocado, chopped in medium chunks
  • 1 small bulb of shallot, minced
  • 1 orange, supremed, and juice squeezed out and saved
  • 1 Ruby grapefruit, supremed, and juice squeezed out and saved
  • juice of 1 lemon
  • several dashes of Sriracha
  • small glug ofolive oil
  • 2 dashes Agave syrup
  • Sea salt and a dash of pepper
In This Recipe
  1. Combine all ingredients. Stir carefully. Don't be afraid to let the avocado melt into the mixture - the creaminess is a nice contrast to the other flavors.
  2. Serve on either lettuce that is lightly dressed, or serve as a condiment with fish, chicken, or curries.

Yum, my mouth is watering! Do you think this would be good mixed with finely sliced cabbage?

That would be delicious! I would be inclined to add a touch of vinegar or more citrus juice and agave. Let me know how it turns out....in fact, that might be the crowning pinnacle of this recipe.

Yes, to the touch of vinegar or citrus/agave. I have a lemon vinaigrette with my Jalapeno slaw that might work well...even a little sliced Jalapeno, perhaps?

Avocado is one of my favorite fruits. Those were great additions that you used!

Wow, sounds fantastic. Am I allowed only one dash of Sriracha?!

Oh Heaven's NO! I hold back due to the taste buds of my live in companion! I would actually encourage more!

Thanks! A really ripe and sweet mango makes all the difference.
