Very tropical

  The temperatures are soaring, its just too hot to have heavy meals. I just want to make a quick salad and be out of the kitchen in a jiffy. For today’s salad, I mixed avocado, mango with beans. You would think that avocado and mango would be a weird combination but when I made this salad it actually tasted really great. If you are a lover of both avocado and mango then this salad is just right for you. I did not add any form of sweetness as the mango was sweet. This salad has to be prepared just before serving as both the avocado and mango tend to turn black if kept cut for a while. Adding fruits, seeds, nuts and herbs makes any salad appealing, tasteful and nutritious. Go on try this recipe out, its refreshing and appetizing. Adding beans make it a salad full of protein for vegetarians.
