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.

This is a great salad as a main dish. It was simple to prepare and very refreshing and it went well with our split pea soup. Thanks

Fabulous. I'm very glad you asked the chef for the recipe. This is a simple salad and dressing to prepare and it tastes wonderful! I opted for a red onion/avocado combo and it was delicious. I used a store-bought chicken from the grocery, diced it up and mixed in a bit of bbq sauce (not too much). I doubled the dressing, since I was making this for 4 people. I first microwaved the honey, right in my shaker jar, then added the lemon and mustard. All in one shaker - no mess! I will definitely be making this salad again for lunches or a quick & healthy dinner. Thank you! ~Made for the Jan. Aussie/NZ Swap~

Yum, Yum and Yum!! I think that sums it up. This salad was delicious, refreshing and healthy. I too used avocado and mango I love both of these. I also just cooked up a chicken breast per person which I seasoned with garlic, paprika and parsley and sliced up to serve (only did this as I had to use them up). I will definitely be making this again with BBQ chicken as this would make it a great quick after work scrumptious dinner. I also just served a big bowl of salad greens on the side for everyone to help themselves to, rather than on the plate as my son and I love salad but my hubby just leaves most of his salad greens. Since I was serving this for three I I doubled the dressing which is so yummy. A great recipe mummamills !!

This is a great salad. I added a few extras. I used duck leftover from Xmas lunch, cherry tomatoes, red onion slivers, parboiled then chilled sugar snap & snow peas, slivers of red capsicum, small chunks of avocado & mango & mixed lettuces. Added a little olive oil to the dressing & S&P. Husband ate some well-aged cheddar with it which he said was a perfect accompaniment. The family want me to make this regularly over summer using chicken. Happy to oblige as it's so easy & delicious - thank you:)
