Mango and Avocado Salad with Pomegranate and Dukkah

Labels: { , , } | © 2015 |

A colourful, festive and deliciously healthy vegetarian salad in a simple citrusy dressing inspired by Brooklyn Supper. It is a mix of sweet, juicy mango and pomegranate seeds, peppery arugula, creamy avocado and crunchy dukkah. It's very easy to make and offers a wealth of texture and antioxidants. For an extra dose of protein, you can add some chicken or prawns to the salad.

  • 1 Ripe mango, peeled, pitted and sliced
  • 1 Ripe avocado, peeled, pitted, and sliced
  • 30 g Arugula
  • 2 tbsp Pomegranate seeds, optional
  • 1 tbsp Dukkah
  • 1 clove Garlic, minced
  • 1 tbsp Lemon juice
  • 2 tbsp Olive oil
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  1. Whisk together the minced garlic, lemon juice and olive oil until well blended and emulsified. Season with salt and pepper. Toss the arugula with half the dressing and place them in a serving plate.
  2. Arrange the sliced mango and avocado in an alternating circle on top, and drizzle with the remaining dressing. Sprinkle the pomegranate seeds and dukkah over and serve. | © 2015 | | © 2015 |

Hi Angie, oh I love this salad, mangoes and avocadoes are gold together. I can never get enough of avocadoes.

Mango and avocado are a Florida speciality. Salads like this one remind you of a tropical paradise. The flavors and colors are a great combination.


motherrimmy 20/10/15 04:16

This is a gorgeous salad, Angie! When I was growing up my cousin loved pomegranates. We'd eat them together picking out seeds one at a time. Happy memories!

Emma @ Bake Then Eat 20/10/15 13:41

Anything with mango and I'm all in :D

Angie, this salad is a keeper! We love avocado and I can already taste the mango with it. Don't know why I never thought if it :)

mjskit 21/10/15 03:39

Another fabulous fruit salad Angie!!! Of course I had to look up Dukkah. What an exciting nut and spice blend. Oh how I need to get a jar of this. :) Like the idea of adding shrimp for some protein. That would be a great complement with these fruits. Thanks for another great recipe!

tigerfish 21/10/15 05:59

Red, yellow, green! What a great fruit combo!

Such an interesting salad, I checked what a dukkah is, again something new for me..

Abbe@This is How I Cook 22/10/15 03:20

Love this Angie! Dukkah is so good on everything but mangoes and avocados are two of my favorites!

Katalina Kastravet 22/10/15 04:57

Angie, you honestly have all my favorites in here, I am crazy for avocado, mango and pomegranates and we always, ALWAYS have arugula in our fridge :) great salad!

Tania@ Kitchen Stories 22/10/15 05:25

Angie these photos make me want to dive in head first.

Claudia 23/10/15 16:14

This is a beauty. I will absolutely be doing this in the coming week. I love salad but after making "same old, same old" for weeks on end - I look to new ones. Love using fruit in salads. I'm also trying to get on a blogging schedule now that summer's over so I can visit on a regular basis! Happy autumn!

Kiran @ 23/10/15 21:18

Such a beautiful and colorful salad! Love the touch of dukkah :)

Choclette Blogger 24/10/15 13:30

This looks so fresh, colourful and delicious. Pretty much anything with either mango or avocado gets my vote, but I'm not sure I've had them together before.

Hester @ Alchemy in the Kitchen 25/10/15 14:38

This salad is pretty as a picture, Angie. It is substantial enough too for an Autumn dish. Love all the flavours and textures.

Shibi Thomas 26/10/15 02:21

That's a refreshing salad!! I always learn something new from your recipes all the time. This time it is Dukkah :)
