It’s a salad, it’s a salsa, it’s a dip!
This mango avocado salad is quick and easy to make, healthy and super delicious!
However, as you most likely know, cut up avocado oxidizes quickly and turns brown, so this salad is best prepared right before serving. If you must make it in advance wait to add in the avocado at the very last, or store in a glass container layered with thin slices of lime over the top to slow the browning process.
