So on the east coast it’s technically spring!

In the last week we have been getting a mixture of 40 degree weather, a sorry excuse for snow, rain and 60 degree weather!

I’m just ready for warm weather, so why not get in the mood with tropical-esq fruit?

Instead of drinking booze, I went the healthy route…

Mango, avocado, I made a vinaigrette dressing with coconut oil, and a touch of honey.

it makes you feel fancy or feel that that you can afford a nice fancy trip…

The sweetness from the mango, and the creaminess from the avocado makes this a very enjoyable salad…

I would have just posted me eating an avocado, and the 8 billions ways you could eat the dang on thing but no would be interested in that post, well I don’t think so…

I mean I could just tell you how I’m watching Will and Grace but what’s the fun in that?

Mango Avocado Salad with Coconut Honey Vinaigrette 

Makes 1 big salad or 2 side salads (easily can be multiplied)

2 yellow mangoes (they run smaller than regular mangoes you can use those to, just 1  of those)

1 medium avocado

season with salt and pepper on top

Add extras if you want…

1 banana

roasted pistachios unsalted

(I added these 5 minutes after I started eating it)

Coconut Honey Vinaigrette

1/8 cup coconut oil melted

1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar

1-2 teaspoons honey

Slice and pit mangoes and avocado, if adding the banana peel and slice as well. Arrange fruit on plate, set aside. Melt down your coconut oil I put mine in the microwave for 30 seconds let cool for a few seconds, add the vinegar and honey whisk until well combined. Drizzle over fruit, Now add the salt and pepper and pistachios if you are… I always toss a salad around on my plate before I start eating it so that is why those go last.
