Tropical mango fruit salad with avocado lime vinaigrette
This delicious tropical pineapple and mango fruit salad served up with a quick and easy avocado lime vinaigrette is my new favorite salad to make. It's perfect for a summer day and the sweetness of the fruit combined with the tartness of the pomegranate arils and lime along with creamy avocado is such a winning combination.
Place avocado, orange juice, white vinegar, garlic powder and cilantro into the blend and blend until smooth. With the blender turned on, slowly add the olive oil to the avocado mixture. Taste and adjust the salt and pepper as desired.
Prepare salad to serve
Place the salad ingredients in a bowl or plate and drizzle with 2 T of dressing. Store the leftover dressing in an airtight container or jar in the refrigerator for up to seven days.
Tips for BEST results:Make sure your pineapple and mango are ripe so they have a sweeter flavor.Avocados to make the dressing should be soft with a green flesh that is free of brown spots so they blend up well and produce a great color for the dressing.The lime in the dressing should help keep the dressing from turning brown but I recommend making the dressing within 24 hours of serving the salad.Trim the outside of the pineapple well to remove the very tough brown “eyes” and skin.
