Avocado Mango Salad

Have you ever had a salsa and wished you could just eat it alone as a meal. No chips or crackers or bruschetta to scoop or spread onto, but just a spoon...straight to your mouth. Anyone with me? That is the inspiration of this salad. And to keep it from looking like Im eating a bowl of salsa, I kept the ingredients larger instead of dicing or cubing them into manageable scooping pieces. :)

Nothing beats rip fruit and with a sweet and perfumy mango mixed with a buttery, smooth avocado you could almost stop there! But adding some acid and salt really helps to bring out the flavor of each.Top it all off with some cilantro and it adds a nice and fresh compliment.
This salad is so satisfying. I eat it almost every day for lunch and my husband asks for it almost nightly as a side with dinner.

Avocado Mango Salad

1 ripe avocado
1 ripe mango
1 large tomato, chopped
1/2 lime or lemon
1/4 cup fresh chopped cilantro

Slice your avocado in half lengthwise and remove the seed. Scoop out the flesh with a large spoon and slice it into thin strips. Arrange onto a platter. Cut your mango away from its pit and remove the skin. Slice into long thin strips and arrange on the same platter with your avocado. Squeeze 1/2 of a lemon or lime over the avocado and mango. Sprinkle chopped tomato over mango and avocado. Sprinkle with desired salt and with cilantro. Serve, and enjoy!
