I call this my Mediterranean Avocado Mango salad. Now that the summer is here I rather spend my time at the beach or at cafes with friends than in the kitchen. This recipe is quick, nutritious, and delicious for even toddlers to enjoy.
Like I said, kids will love this. Beli's taste buds are a bit confused since she eats applesauce with scrambled eggs but she usually tries anything. All the ingredients in the salad are her favorites so I though, "why not combine them all into one dish?" I think from her smile it's a keeper in Mommy's recipe book.
If you would like to prepare it, here are the ingredients I used.
One avocado, peeled and cut into small cubes
juice of 1/2 a lemon
1 tsp of olive oil
1 tomato diced
1tsp of capers, rinsed (don't worry the tanginess will be balanced by the mango)
1 mango, peeled and cut in small cubes
Mix all ingredients, add salt and pepper to your taste and garnish with green or red grapes(as you can see from the previous picture, Beli was not fond of that idea so she removed them from her plate). I garnished mine with parsley and crushed red pepper. In case you are wondering I brought the crushed pepper from my recent trip to the States because I couldn't find it at the grocery store. Then I served it with bagel chips. What do you think? Feel free to substitute or subtract the capers but the mango is a must.
