There is a certain sense of British cynicism towards putting fruit in savoury salads, it seems far too ‘LA’ for a British palette. However, avocado and mango are perfect for turning fruit&veg combination skeptics.
This salad is a perfect quick lunch and contains lots of good fats from the avocado, plenty of vitamins from the fruit and veg as well as B vitamins (especially important in a vegan diet) and protein from the seeds. As usual, all ingredients are available even in small supermarkets and reasonably priced.
Ingredients (to serve 2):
1 1/2 ripe avocados
Scooped and chopped into small cubes
1 ripe mango
3 spring onions
2-3 medium salad tomatoes
Salad leaves (rocket or spinach are best)
Roll and crush the leaves with hands to release flavour before finely chopping
A handful of sunflower and pumpkin seeds
Season with salt and cayenne pepper
