Magnificent Mango Salad

This salad is so great to make anytime of year. Even better in the winter to create a bit of summer in the dark cold days. I love the color this salad creates!

2-3 ripe avocados peeled, pitted and diced

1-2 ripe mangoes peeled and diced

1 red pepper seeded and diced

3 sprigs of green onion finely chopped

1 head of red leaf lettuce washed and torn into bite size pieces

1 spoon of toasted sesame seeds

dressing:

2 spoons of freshly squeezed lime juice

2-3 spoons of extra virgin olive oil

1-2 spoons of maple syrup

a dash or two of tamari sauce

a pinch or two of ground cumin

salt and pepper to taste

In a large salad bowl, mix all the salad ingredients except the dressing. In a small bowl, mix together all the dressing ingredients. Add the dressing to the salad and toss until everything is well coated. Serve in bowls and then sprinkle the sesame seeds on top before serving.

Tip: sometimes I like to add diced red onion to jazz it up a bit

Enjoy!
