Avocado–Mango Salad

Nuvita Biscuits

The creamy avocado, sweet mango, and bright citrus in this salad make a refreshing counterpoint to rich and savory stews.


½ cup finely chopped parsley
¼ cup peanut or canola oil
¼ cup fresh lime juice
2 tbsp. fresh orange juice
1 jalapeño, stemmed, seeded, and minced
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
2 ripe mangoes, peeled, pitted, and cut into ¼″ cubes
2 ripe avocados, pitted, peeled, and cut into 1″ chunks
1 small orange, peeled and cut into segments
2 tsp. unsweetened shredded coconut (optional)


1. Whisk together 6 tbsp. parsley, oil, both citrus juices, jalapeño, and salt and pepper in a large bowl. Add mangoes and avocados, and toss gently to combine; cover with plastic wrap, and refrigerate to meld flavors, about 1 hour.

2. To serve, transfer avocado salad to a serving bowl; halve orange segments crosswise, and lay over salad. Sprinkle with remaining parsley, and coconut if using. Serve chilled.

    So I’m a vegetarian and ever since somebody told me that avocados are an important source of something for vegetarians I’ve been eating a lot of them. Only problem is I only know how to use them one way, and that is to make guacamole with them. I’ve been eating guacamole for months now and would like to know: WHAT ELSE CAN I DO WITH AN AVOCADO? :) Thanks!
