Raspberry, Avocado & Mango Salad

Pureed berries give the tangy wine vinegar dressing a creamy texture that gently clings to the lettuce and fruit. This is a salad to enjoy when fresh berries are in the market.

    notes

    Tips: To dice a mango:

    1. Slice both ends off the mango, revealing the long, slender seed inside. Set the fruit upright on a work surface and remove the skin with a sharp knife.

    2. With the seed perpendicular to you, slice the fruit from both sides of the seed, yielding two large pieces.

    3. Turn the seed parallel to you and slice the two smaller pieces of fruit from each side.

    4. Cut the fruit into the desired shape.

    To toast chopped or sliced nuts, heat a small dry skillet over medium-low heat. Add nuts and cook, stirring, until lightly browned and fragrant, 2 to 3 minutes.
