“This healthy salad is bursting with fresh, tropical flavors. Featuring cucumber, avocado, and mango, it is dressed with a slightly sweet and tangy dressing with a hint of spice for delightful kick.” – Chef Noel Cunningham, Cuisine by Noel
(Makes 4 servings)
2 mangoes, cubed
1 avocado, cubed
For the Vinaigrette:
1/2 cup olive oil
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
1 tsp. honey
Salt and ground black pepper to taste
1 Tbsp. fresh parsley, finely chopped
1/2 scotch bonnet pepper, deseeded
Make the vinaigrette: in a blender, blend together all of the vinaigrette ingredients in and place in the refrigerator to chill.
In a medium bowl, toss together the mangoes, avocado and cucumber then drizzle with vinaigrette and serve on a bed of lettuce.
– The oil in the vinaigrette brings out the pepper’s fruity side while also cooling the heat.
