Mad for mango & avocado salad

Salad with mango, avocado and coriander

Today, we were having good friends over for dinner. The sun was shining and we were having a barbecue. I felt like having avocado, and I felt like having mango. I also wanted a green salad. So I decided to mix it all up. I wasn’t sure it would work, but it did! A fresh fruity filling salad. Perfect for barbecues. We had fillets of pork, but I will also try it with scampi.
