Tropical Avocado Salad

 I’m beyond pumped to get into some lighter recipes here on WGC and it all starts with this Tropical Avocado Salad!

Tropical Avocado Salad from www.whatsgabycooking.com (@whatsgabycookin)

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!!

  1. Hi Gaby! When I read this recipe it made me think of a comment you had previously made about a product in your Favorite Trader Joe’s products post … TJ’s Orange Muscat Champagne Vinegar. You said that vinegar made a great vinaigrette … can this vinegar be used here in place of the Vinegar & OJ in this recipe? I have been anxious to try that TJ vinegar since reading that post. How would you alter the recipe shown above to use the TJ vinegar? Thanks!!

  2. Where do you get champagne vinegar? I have seen the TJ orange muscat one but nothing in other stores. Do you have a favorite brand? I have been substituting red wine vinegar in the lemon- champagne vinaigrette recipe from the cookbook.
