Avocado and Mango Salad with Pistachio and Curry

June 17, 2012

Author Notes: The perfect summer salad to complement just about anything off the grill. Creamy bites of avocado, blend well with sweet slices of mango. Diced cucumber adds the necessary crunch. Pickled chilis and hint of curry add just the right kick to the flavors. Garnish with chopped pistachios and fresh basil leaves.
