Mango-Avocado Salad

  • Prep Time 0:10
  • Cook Time 0:05
  • Estimated Cost $11.50

What better way to welcome (or at least encourage) warm weather than this luscious, flavorful salad? I love it with light, crispy tofu, but it’s also delicious with grilled fish, chicken or prawns. Buy your peanuts in the bulk section for the best deal.


  • 1 ripe mango, diced $1.50
  • 1 ripe avocado, diced $1
  • 2 carrots, shredded $1
  • 2 cups cherry tomatoes, halved $2
  • 2 scallions, sliced $1
  • 1/2 red onion, diced $1
  • 1 small bunch fresh mint, chopped $1
  • 8 oz. tofu, cubed $1.50
  • 2 tsp vegetable oil Pantry
  • 1/2 lemon, juiced $0.50
  • 1 tbsp olive oil Pantry
  • 1 tsp sugar or honey Pantry
  • 1/8 cup roasted peanuts, crushed $1
  • salt and pepper to taste Pantry

Recipe Serves 2


  1. Heat vegetable oil in a medium frying pan over high heat. Fry tofu for 2-3 minutes on 2 sides until crisp and brown. Drain on paper towels.
  2. Whisk together lemon juice, olive oil, sugar/honey and salt and pepper to taste in a small bowl. In a salad bowl, toss together avocado, mango, carrots, onions, scallions, tomatoes, and mint. Toss with dressing and divide between two plates.
  3. Divide the tofu and peanuts between the two plates of salad and serve.

First of all, I love your site. I’ve definitely been collecting some of your recipes to try out. Hooray for being gourmet on a budget!
I also love the combination of avocado and mango – so refreshing. Another one of my favorite refreshing salad combos is avocado and grapefruit – check out this recipe for South Beach Fennel Salad with grapefruit, avocado, mint and lime. Also if you’re just looking for a light, fresh dressing idea, this Best Dressed Salad Dressing with grapefruit, flax, jalapeno and honey is truly delicious.
