Mango and avocado salad

If you love the combination of sweet and salty flavors, mango and avocado salad is perfect for you. This salad is fresh, delicious and easy to make. In this article, we will teach you how to make a mango and avocado salad step by step, as well as give you some tips to improve its flavor.

Mango and avocado salad: A delicious combination

Mango and avocado salad is a delicious combination of tropical flavors. The mango provides a sweet and refreshing flavor, while the avocado adds a touch of creaminess. Additionally, both ingredients are rich in nutrients such as vitamin C, vitamin E and potassium.

Preparing the ingredients for the mango and avocado salad

On this occasion we are talking about a refreshing and flavorful dish that is easy to prepare. To make it, you'll need some fresh, high-quality ingredients, such as mangoes, avocados, lettuce, red onion, tomatoes, cilantro, and lime. Here we explain how to prepare each of the ingredients:

Mango: To prepare the mango, you must first peel it and cut it into small cubes. If you've never cut a mango before, it may seem a little complicated, but it's easy once you try it. First, hold the mango vertically on a cutting board and cut on both sides of the seed or stone. Then, cut the mango into cubes without cutting the skin.

Avocado: For the avocado, you must cut it in half, remove the stone and peel it. Next, cut the avocado into cubes the same size as the mango.

Lettuce: You can use any type of lettuce for this salad, but romaine lettuce or butter lettuce work great. Wash and dry the leaves well and then cut them into small pieces.

Red onion: The red onion adds a spicy kick and a little crunch to the salad. To prepare it, cut the onion into thin slices and soak them in cold water for a few minutes to reduce the intensity of the flavor.

Lime: Lime is used to make the salad dressing. Simply squeeze the juice of a lime into a small bowl and add olive oil, honey, and salt and pepper to taste.

Cherry tomatoes: Cherry tomatoes are little culinary gems that cannot be missing in any salad or fresh dish. These small tomatoes have an intense, sweet flavor that makes them perfect for adding a touch of flavor to any dish. This time we will only have to cut them in half to add them to our salad.

Cilantro: Cilantro has a refreshing and slightly spicy flavor, with a citrus touch that makes it ideal for Mexican, Asian and Mediterranean dishes. For our dish we will only have to chop it into small pieces to later add it to our recipe.

With the ingredients ready, we can now move on to the next section and start assembling the salad.

Tips to improve mango and avocado salad

Mango and avocado salad is a delicious and nutritious dish that can be improved with a few simple adjustments. Here are some tips to improve the salad and make it even tastier:

Add spices

If you like spicy food, add some chopped chili or jalapeño to the salad. You can also add cumin, cilantro and lime to give it a more Latin flavor.

Change the dressing

If you're bored of lemon and olive oil dressing, try something different. You can make a honey mustard dressing or a ginger-soy dressing to give a whole new flavor to the salad.


There are many different varieties of mango and avocado, each with its own unique flavor and texture. Try different varieties to see which one you like best.

Add dried fruits

The nuts add extra crunch and nutty flavor to the salad. Try walnuts, almonds or pine nuts.

Add cheese

If you're a cheese lover, add some crumbled feta or goat cheese to the salad. The cheese will add a salty, creamy flavor to the salad.

Adjust the proportions

 If you prefer more mango than avocado, or vice versa, adjust the proportions according to your taste. The salad is very versatile and can be adjusted according to your personal preferences.

By following these tips, you can make your mango and avocado salad even more delicious and varied. Experiment with different ingredients and flavors to find your favorite combination.
