Mango Avocado Pasta Salad


Mango season is always the best time of year and I find a way to incorporate mangoes into just about everything. This pasta salad recipe is simple to make and absolutely delicious. This recipe is full of flavor and makes you feel like you're eating a big bowl of summer. The perfect healthy summer recipe! Knowing that both mango and avocado are spring seasonal produce and being that I’m a fan of both (individually and as a combo), So I thought why not share this summer-fresh pasta salad with you all. A fresh sunny salad like this one for perfect for my lunch.
April month Shhhh Cooking Secretly Challenge discussed as “Salad” as topic.I have paired again with Mayuri Patel, who gave me two lovely secret ingredients Mango and Pasta. Frankly speaking,my pasta is colourful and healthly .Thanks dear for making our day wonderful with pasta salad and our family enjoyed.

 
Prep time
Cooking time
Serves
5 mins
       15 mins
 4 persons

Recipe type: Salad
Cuisine: Italian

Ingredients
  • Fusilli Pasta -2 cups
  • Ripe Mango (Cubed) -1 no
  • Ripe Avocado (Cubed) -1 no
  • Mint leaves –few sprigs
  • Olive oil -1 tbsp. (tossing the pasta)
  • Salt and Pepper –to taste
  • Lemon Juice -1 tbsp

Method
1. Cook pasta according to package directions. While pasta is cooking, mix together the lime juice and olive oil. 2. Once pasta has cooked, run it through cold water, drain, and then transfer it to a bowl. Add half of the lime juice and olive oil mixture, toss, and set aside or put in refrigerator to cool.
 3. In a large bowl, place all the ingredients for the salad. Now mix avocado, mango, lime juice and olive oil, fresh mint leaves and toss well.
4. Serve immediately or refrigerate until ready to serve.


 Notes
Add about 2/3 of cooked pasta. (You can use more or less depending on how much pasta you’d like in your salad.)
Lime Dressing not just adds zing in this simple salad but also prevents sliced avocados from blackening quickly. So I always have some extra dressing in refrigerator.
In morning, add sliced avocado mixed in remaining dressing and this salad will easily sat fresh for next 5-6 hours
