I honestly don’t know what to call this beautiful and delicious salad, but all that matters is that I get the recipe out. This salad is too darn good NOT to share! It’s creamy, low in fat, nutritious, delicious, and satisfying. I’ve been eating salads all summer long and this one has to go down as one of my TOP favorite, because it’s really THAT good! And as a meat-eater, I never really had much love for salads like I do now. This raw vegan lifestyle makes you appreciate and love a lot of things, though…
I added a mangoes and dried figs in this salad, and WOW! What a combo. One day this week when I didn’t have any tomatoes on hand to add in my salad, I substituted the tomatoes for 1 large mango and it was truly divine. Tomatoes were not even missed in the salad! The mangoes and avocado were the life of the party to the salad, and if you don’t already know, mangoes combine very well with avocado, red onion and cilantro. (You must try if you have not tried that combo).
This salad will make you fall in love with salads over again, if you’re not already. This salad is super easy and simple to make. Enjoy and let me know how you like it.
