Mango-Avocado Salad With Lime Vinaigrette

Mango-Avocado Salad With Lime Vinaigrette

Inspired by Vietnamese green papaya salad, this salad stars ripe, juicy mangoes and dresses them in the classic punchy lime-fish sauce dressing. Tender torn greens, crunchy sweet snap peas and creamy avocado round out this dish with both crispy and creamy bites. The cooling salad is the perfect side to accompany grilled or roasted fish, chicken, or steak. If mangoes are unavailable, tomatoes or sweet stone fruit like peaches are tasty options.

  1. Step 1

    In a large bowl, combine oil, lime juice, shallot, fish sauce, sugar and garlic; season with salt and pepper. Whisk until well blended, then stir in half of the cilantro. Reserve half of the dressing in a small bowl for serving.
  2. Step 2

    Arrange lettuce in an even layer on a serving platter. Add mangoes, snap peas and avocados to the large bowl and gently toss to evenly coat in the dressing.
  3. Step 3

    Arrange salad over lettuce and garnish with the remaining cilantro. Serve with the reserved dressing on the side, for drizzling.
