Excellent was the verdict from family :) I couldn't decide between the avocado and the mango so added both. I also added some chopped red peper which I had on hand. I used spring onion in place of the red onion. Topped it all off with some toasted cashew nuts. Thanks for a great 'Keeper' :) Update; May 2009: This time doubled the amounts of ingredients & added in some black & green grapes & cherry tomatoes cut in halves along with the mango, avocado, red onion, spring onions & red pepper. This was a big hit at the pot luck I took it too :) I really enjoy this salad and make it often.

What a wonderful salad. I enjoyed all the flavors and textures very much. Everything blended beautifully together to create a remarkable treat. I used french shallots, sweet red onions, ripe avocado and romaine lettuce, with my bbq chicken, so good. Thanks so much for sharing your stolen recipe. :) Updated: This salad is so good, I made it again, this time using a beautiful ripe yellow mango. Next time I will make it using both the avocado and the mango for a truly decadent treat. This is a wonderful recipe that I have added to my keeper box. It is so delicious, light and refreshing. I love the ease in making the dressing, so simple, so delicious. The best luncheon on these long hot summer days.
