Summer Avocado Salad


                Nothing says summer quite like colorful, light salads and this Summer Avocado Salad certainly fits the bill! I have been having some fun lately trying out various recipes for upcoming projects and I fell in love with this one! It’s perfect on it’s own as a light starter for your summer backyard dinner party or you can serve it with whole pita chips as an appetizer. Enjoy!

Summer Avocado Salad

2 Avocados (or one avocado per person)

3/4 of a mango chopped

1/4 of red pepper, seeded and finely chopped

1/4 green pepper, seeded and finely chopped

1/2 cup of grape tomatoes, sliced

1/4 of a cucumber, skinned and chopped

1/4 of a red onion, chopped


juice of 1/2 a lemon, 1/2 a lime, 1 tbsp of Olive Oil and a pinch of salt

Combine all ingredients in one bowl, cutting and slicing your avocados last (so that they don’t brown prematurely), mix up your “dressing” in a separate bowl and then toss it in with all the veggies and fruits. Serve either as a dip with whole wheat pita chips or in a fun glass (like I did) as a creative, light starter for your festive summer dinner party! Tastes so fresh and so summery, you’re going to love it!
