I'm beyond pumped to get into some lighter recipes here on WGC and it all starts with this Tropical Avocado Salad!
One of my favorite quick and easy and COLORFUL salads of all times. This Tropical Avocado Salad is perfect to usher in spring and get a healthy dose of fruits and veggies. Plus it's loaded with avocado, and you know I'm on a constant quest to eat as much avocado as humanly possible on a regular basis. If there was a day that went back that I didn't have an avocado in some way, shape or form, I'd be concerned. I don't even know what that would look like!!!
So here's todays daily dose of avo! It comes complete with thinly sliced mango, pomegranate seeds, arugula, a SUPER easy vinaigrette and some baby cucumbers. It's crunchy and smooth at the same time with bursts of flavor and texture from the pomegranate seeds. You can't go wrong!!
