Avocado and mango salad with tequila-lime vinaigrette

Avocado and mango salad with Tequila-lime vinaigrette


Luckily, summer is in full swing on the other side of the globe, and the fruits and veggies that abound there at this time of the year make a welcome appearance on our market shelves.

So when I see ripe avocados and mangoes piled high at my local grocery store, I am relieved and happy for the little bit of sunshine they bring with them!

然后我让阳光穿过我准备的菜肴,就像这个简单但美味的沙拉一样。鳄梨和芒果切片藏在美味的拥抱中,而芝麻菜提供脆脆,辛辣的床。龙舌兰酒醋汁乞求在整个事情上淋上,脆皮玉米饼条增加了触感的乐趣 - 你的牙齿将幸福地搏斗。

This salad never fails to chase my winter blues away!

We’ve been getting an unusually loooonng cold winter (for us anyway) and I crave a cold smoothie or a nice lite summery salad. I love mangos and avocados so adding tequila just sounds like the perfect touch. Thanks! So nicely written.

  6. 我刚吃完早餐吃了鳄梨 - 不要问我为什么 - 刚刚渴望他们。今天会让一个芒果与这个一起去 - 只是完美。如果我只能找到一些芝麻菜......几乎是时候种植种子。美味 - 将侦察葡萄酒 - 这是一年中的美好时光,与音乐一起去...

  14. You have managed to capture the memory of warmer days and give a great wine suggestion too. Nice job!

  15. Beautifully fresh and simple — the best kind of meal. I’ve had those ingredients as a salsa, and as a salad with fabulous big slices, that would be a real treat!
