Two of my favorite flavors just so happen to be fresh mango and ripe avocado. Combined, this salad is crazy good. The texture is unlike anything you’ve ever had in a salad. Your first bite will have your mouth thinking that you’re eating a fruit salad, but once the avocado and spices hit, you’ll second guess that and think that you’re eating Thai salad instead. Either way, get ready for what’s certain to be one of your new favorite salads!

Ingredients to make Avocado Mango Salad

  • Mangoes: Ripe but firm mangoes are key for making this salad taste amazing.
  • Avocados: Find avocados that are ripe as well so that the texture is firm, but not too firm.
  • Red onion: If you can use a sweet red onion, you’ll be very happy with the results, but you can also use green onions or shallots.
  • Cilantro: The flavor of fresh cilantro is really great with the mango and avocado.
  • Dressing: This is a combination of olive oil, lime juice (which also helps to reduce the avocado oxidizing) along with honey, cumin, chili powder, salt and pepper.
Ingredients to make the recipe

How to make a mango salad

  1. Add all the dressing ingredients to a bowl large enough to fit the mango and avocados.
  2. Whisk it all together until it’s emulsified – it will be lighter and well combined.
  3. Chop up the avocado, mango, onions, and cilantro and add to a bowl on top of the dressing.
  4. Use a spoon to gently combine the mango salad ingredients together until coated.

Tips for making Savory Mango Salad

  1. Make it all in one bowl. By whisking the salad dressing together in a large bowl, it creates less messy dishes in the kitchen. Then you can toss everything in the large bowl and clean up the edges before serving.
  2. Don’t skimp on the lime juice. The lime juice (or even lemon juice) is important as it will keep the mango and avocado from changing color.
  3. Put the salad in the fridge to chill. I’m all about temperatures and food and I think that chilling this in the fridge for 30 minutes beforehand allows the flavors to really stand out.
  4. Make the mango bite size. Don’t cut the mango up into too big of pieces. You want each bite to have a balance to get all the flavors.

Frequently asked questions

Can you eat mango skin?

Some people eat them but for this salad, you need to clean and wash the mango, then peel off the outer layer of skin before cubing it and adding it to the salad.

How to tell if a mango is ripe?

If you’re looking at a mango, look for ones that are yellow in color. You will also then want to give them a squeeze test. Ripe mangoes should be a bit soft when you gently squeeze on them.

How to tell if an avocado is ripe?

Darker-colored avocadoes mean that they’re ripe. The squeeze test is also a good indicator to determine if an avocado is ripe as well. There should be a little bit of give to the avocado. However, if it’s super squishy, it’s past its prime and you need to find another.
