  1. Wow, this salad was delicious! I loved the buttery avocado with the sweet mango, the citrus dressing just pulled it together perfectly! I have a calamondin tree, the little fruits are very sour so I subbed them for the lime juice; loved the touch of cumin, outstanding dressing! Made and reviewed for the Spain/Portugal Forum, July 2012
  2. This was a delicious salad. It had a wonderful flavor. The only thing I changed was to cut it in half and I used a blend of lettuces and arugula. The champagne vinigar adds a really nice subtle flavor. This made a really great lunch, I had it with Recipe #307486 Perfect lunch. Thanks for sharing your recipe WiGal.
  3. This was excellent!! The citrus flavored vinaigrette goes perfectly with the avocado, mango and arugula. I didn't have champagne vinegar, so I used balsamic and that worked! Thanks for a great recipe!
  4. Great salad to accompany rich, spicy enchiladas. I served it with Crock Pot Chicken with Black Beans
  5. I made this awhile ago and can't beleive I forgot to review it. I followed the recipe exactly, only to make it a main dish meal, I added cooked shrimp. Hubby was a little wary of having mango in a salad, but I assured him it would taste good, and it did. We really enjoyed it, and I would definately make it again. It was different from any salad I have made before, and it was just what we were looking for when we were craving a light dinner. Thanks for posting.


  1. This is a terrific salad and I loved the flavor combination. I had to sub fresh spinish for the arugula because of availability, but the ingredients paired well with it. I also used a pinch of crushed red peppers in place of the red pepper. The dressing is full of citrusy flavor and matches nicely with the mango & avacado. I will be making this again. Made for ZWT4.
