Mango And Avocado Salad

Serves: 4 sides.

Preparation Time: 10 – 15 minutes.


  • 2 ripe avocados
  • 1 just-ripe (but still firm) mango
  • 2 little gem lettuces, separated into leaves, washed and dried
  • 1/2 long, mild red chilli
  • 1/2 red onion
  • 2 sprigs of thyme, leaves only
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • olive oil
  • salt


  1. Cut the avocados in half, remove the stones and cut the flesh into long thin slices.
  2. Cut both cheeks from the mango stone and cross-hatch the flesh, making sure your knife goes right down to the skin but not through it.
  3. Press the center of each piece of the mango skin with your fingers so that the straight, cut flesh side becomes rounded (it will look like a mango hedgehog), then use the knife to disconnect the squares of mango: you will have cubes of mango.
  4. Put the lettuce leaves on to 4 plates.
  5. Deseed and chop the chilli and thinly slice the onion.
  6. Arrange the avocado, mango, chilli and onion on top.
  7. Sprinkle over the thyme leaves, squeeze over the lime and drizzle over some olive oil.
  8. Season with salt.
