Saladu Awooka àk Mango – Senegalese Avocado and Mango Salad

Saladu Awooka àk Mango - Senegalese Avocado and Mango Salad
The creamy avocado, sweet mango, and bright citrus in this salad make a refreshing counterpoint to Senegal's rich and savoury stews.
Prep time: 
Total time: 
  • ½ cup finely chopped parsley
  • ¼ cup peanut or canola oil
  • ¼ cup fresh lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons fresh orange juice
  • 1 jalapeño, stemmed, seeded, and minced
  • kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 2 ripe mangoes, peeled, pitted, and cut into 1 cm cubes
  • 2 ripe avocados, pitted, peeled, and cut into 2 cm chunks
  • 1 small navel orange, peeled and cut into segments
  • 2 teaspoons shredded coconut (optional)
  1. Whisk together 4 tablespoons parsley, oil, both citrus juices, jalapeño, and salt and pepper in a large bowl.
  2. Add mangoes and avocados, and toss gently to combine; cover with plastic wrap, and refrigerate to meld flavours, about 1 hour.
  3. To serve, transfer avocado salad to a serving bowl; halve orange segments crosswise, and lay over salad.
  4. Sprinkle with remaining parsley, and coconut if using. Serve chilled.
For variety, try substituting the parsley with fresh coriander leaves

Oh yum, I can’t wait until mangoes are in abundance this summer, mostly because of the cost factor!.. But I’m soo going to make this – it’s sounds delicious!
