I’m a huge fan of Latin-inspired dishes and anything with avocado excites me. Both avocados and mango provide you with vitamin E & C which are great for glowing skin and a healthy immune system. Mangos are also fabulous sources of vitamin A which is perfect for strong eyesight.
Avocado, mango & cucumber salad with cilantro-lime dressing is refreshing, tasty, and exquisite. Pair this salad with tacos, enchiladas, nachos, fajitas, or roasted chicken and you’ll enjoy a complete meal.
- 1 avocado
- 1 mango
- ½ cup queso fresco
- 1 cucumber
- 1 bunch cilantro
- 2 Tbsp lime juice
- 1 Tbsp olive oil
- Salt to taste
In a food processor or blender, puree the cilantro, lime juice, olive oil, and salt to make the dressing.
Chop the avocado, mango, and queso fresco into 1-inch cubes or chunks.
- Peel the cucumber. Chop the cucumber into 1-inch cubes or chunks.
Put the avocado, mango, queso fresco, and cucumber into a big bowl.
- Mix in 6 Tbsp of the dressing. (You’ll have leftover dressing for another dish, too). Serve.
