Avocado, Cucumber and Mango Salad

A mouth full of badass-ness (that's a word right?)

This is going to be one of my go-to summer salads this year. I made it in January for my family and we loved it. I am not a dressing person but this recipe came with one so I am providing it here. Honestly, I like the combination of flavors; so adding extra dressing seems a little pointless to me. But, to each their own. I got this recipe from an app called "Kitchen Stories" and while it does call for cashews, you can easily omit that. This is also a perfect sald for your vegan/vegetarian friends that is a little outside the box.

This salad MUST be eaten in a few days. Otherwise the mango and avocado break down to mush. Still good but not very pretty to look at.

  • 1 avocado
  • 1/2 cucumber
  • 2 stalks green onion
