Directions: 

  1. Prepare veggies and mango, placing in a medium bowl, then toss in olive oil with a dash of salt and parsley. Let sit while you prepare dressing.
  2. Mash avocado until completely smooth, add spices and lime, and continue to mix well until combined. Taste and adjust spices according to taste. It should have a more pungent garlic-lime taste than traditional guacamole.
  3. Dress salad thoroughly so all veggies are well-coated.
