Tips for this Summer Salad Recipe
- Getting the avocados and the mangoes to ripen at the same speed can be a little challenging. If the avocado is ripening too quickly, just pop it into the fridge.
- If you can get purple basil (usually from the farmer's market) it tastes great in this recipe!
- Make sure to cube the mangoes and avocado in small pieces - ideally no larger than the blueberries. When everything is relatively the same size, you'll enjoy all the flavors in each bite.
- This recipe doesn’t require any fancy kitchen equipment or gadgets - the only thing you really need is a mixing bowl and what my grandma used to call a rubber scraper. My favorite mixing bowls are these OXO Good Grips ones. My favorite “rubber scraper” is this silicone spatula - I use it for everything.
