Delicious Avocado Mango Salad Recipe in 10 Minutes

In Blog, Recipes by Hong68 Comments

I was never a salad person. I grew up in a family where we only ate cooked vegetables. The thought of consuming raw vegetables never once crossed my mind until a few weeks ago when I decided to be a little adventurous.

A few weeks ago, I bought some avocados and vegetables and since I’m not good at cooking, I decided to make an avocado tomato salad out of them. I was neither confident nor had a high expectation that it was going to turn out good.

I was actually pretty surprised to find how amazingly delicious vegetables can be when consumed raw.

I’ve definitely missed out a lot on the raw vegetables and their health benefits. Now with my avocado and raw vegetable addiction, I think I will be catching up to the missed salad in no time.

At my restaurant, we have this dish called Thai mango chicken. This dish contains freshly sliced mango, sliced onion, and chopped multi-color peppers. They are then stir-fried in Thai sweet and spicy mango sauce and topped off with minced cilantro.

Thai mango chicken is one of my favorite dishes. One day I was eating this scrumptious and savory dish, I suddenly had the inspiration to make some kind of mango salad.

Since I’ve been making salads for several weeks now and I’m pretty confident this salad was going to turn out beautiful and tasty.

Below is the picture of this delicious avocado mango salad recipe.

Delicious Avocado Mango Salad Recipe

In this post, I am going to share with the importance of sulfur-rich foods and how to make this delicious avocado mango salad.

So without further ado, let’s get started.


The Benefits of Sulfur-Rich Foods

We hear so much in the media and from our friends and family the importance of antioxidants, vitamins, and supplements, but rarely do you hear about the importance of sulfur (MSM). I am not talking about the inorganic sulfur (the rotten-egg smell), but rather the sulfur that’s naturally occurring in foods and in the human body.  

You’re probably wondering what is so great about sulfur. Well, sulfur is present in all living tissues. It’s a component in two important amino acids:

  1. Methionine, which your body doesn’t synthesize and must be obtained from your diet
  2. Cysteine, which needs a steady supply of sulfur and is synthesized by your body.

Sulfur is one of the most important minerals in the human body. It is critical to help us detoxify and regenerate new tissue and it also plays roles in many physiological processes.

4 More reasons why sulfur is so special:

  1. Sulfur-rich foods nourish the mitochondria.
    • Mitochondria are known as the powerhouses of the cell. They are organelles that act like a digestive system which takes in nutrients, breaks them down, and creates energy-rich molecules for the cell.
  2.  Want to improve joint pain and stiffness?  You need sulfur.
    • Sulfur is important for producing collagen, which makes up all your connective tissues. It works by helping the body reduce inflammatory responses that contribute to swelling and stiffness and help cells to release many byproducts and excess fluids from the joints.
    • In fact, many arthritis sufferers take a supplement called organic sulfur or MSM (methylsulfonylmethane) to alleviate joint pain. You can also eat sulfur-rich foods to relieve pain as well.
  3. Who wants beautiful skin, hair, and nails? We all want that, right?
    • Well, Sulfur has the ability to keep your complexion clear and youthful, and hair sleek and smooth. Sulfur helps to boost collagen, protein and keratin levels. These are nutrients that are necessary for the health and maintenance of skin, nails, and hair.
  4. Want to improve heart health?
    • Sulfur-rich vegetables also help to prevent the narrowing of blood vessels, preventing atherosclerosis. The disease disrupts the flow of blood around the body, posing serious cardiovascular complications.
    • Sulfur has the ability to build flexible cells in the arteries and veins. The flexible and elastic blood vessel tissues are able to pass oxygen and nutrients through their walls to nourish the rest of the body. This allows the body to handle the blood flow much easier and therefore lessens the workload on the heart.

Delicious Avocado Mango Salad Recipe

I love the colors in this refreshing salad with fresh lime juice and organic honey dressing. The mixture of these fresh ingredients makes it a fun and a colorful salad.

The crunchiness of the purple cabbage and red onion, the sweetness of the mango, the creaminess of the avocado, the textures, and the combination of all the other fresh ingredients and fresh flavor in this salad are perfectly balanced and lovely.

This avocado mango salad makes a perfect snack, side dish, or lunch, as well as for parties or family reunion. To make this salad a more complete meal, you can also add grilled shrimp, grilled salmon, grilled chicken, or grilled turkey.

Delicious Avocado Mango Salad Recipe in 10 Minutes

For every recipe, I try to use as many organic ingredients as possible. If you can’t obtain organic, conventionally grown fruits and vegetables are better than none! They work fine for this salad, but there are a few things you need to be aware of.

Be sure to take extra care with non-organic or conventional vegetables by washing them thoroughly and removing peels and cores when possible. This helps to minimize your exposure to pesticides and other chemicals.

Certain fruits and vegetables also tend to be far more contaminated than others simply because they’re more susceptible to various infestations. Therefore, sprayed more heavily with pesticides, herbicides, insecticides and other chemicals.

Some foods are also more “absorbent” or more prone to sucking up chemicals with their thin, tender skins. Such foods would be high on your list for buying organic.

Here are some helpful articles that talk about when to buy organic and when not to.

Sulfur-Containing Ingredients in This Salad 

Avocado

avocado

  • Avocados are high in tripeptide, which is formed when three amino acids are bonded together that breaks down to cysteine after digestion. Cysteine is a sulfuric amino acid, making avocado a great source of sulfur.
  • Avocados are a heart-healthy nutrient-dense food that provides substantial amounts of vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients with relatively few calories. In fact, 1/3 of a medium avocado (50g) has 80 calories and contributes nearly 20 vitamins and minerals, making it a great nutrient dense food choice.
  • Avocados are a great source of vitamins C, E, K, and B-6, as well as riboflavin, niacin, folate, pantothenic acid, magnesium, and potassium. They also provide lutein, beta-carotene, and omega-3 fatty acids.
  • Avocados contain lutein and zeaxanthin, two phytochemicals that are especially concentrated in the tissues in the eyes where they provide antioxidant protection to help minimize damage.

 

Red Onion 

  • white and red onionsOnions are high in vitamin C, a good source of fiber, and with only 45 calories per serving. Onions are free of sodium, fat, and cholesterol, and also provide a number of other key nutrients.
  • Onions contain compounds such as allyl sulfides and sulfoxides that may improve heart health and repair tissues in joints.
  • Onion is one of the best sources of sulfur. The high sulfur content of red onions alone supports the body’s natural ability to detox.
  • Onions are powerful superfoods with anti-cancer, antiviral, antibacterial, and antioxidant properties. They are packed with beneficial nutrients and compounds.
  • Onions are also rich in quercetin, which is a powerful bioflavonoid. Quercetin helps to remove excessive estrogen levels from the body. This antioxidant also stimulates liver function to detoxify estrogen and other cancer-causing agents.

 

Purple Cabbage

  • purple cabbage Cabbage is a cruciferous vegetable, it contains sulfur-based compounds called glucosinolates. They have anti-carcinogenic (anti-cancer) properties. In the body, glucosinolates become compounds called isothiocyanates, which some studies suggest inhibit the growth of cancer cells.
  • Cabbage is a natural and effective cholesterol reducer. Cabbage prevents bile from absorbing fat after a meal, which lowers the overall amount of cholesterol in the body.
  • Cabbage is rich in minerals, such as calcium and potassium, choline, iodine, phosphorous, sodium, and sulfur. It is also an excellent source of vitamins A, B, and C.
  • Raw cabbage and raw cabbage juice both relieve and heal any kind of gastrointestinal ulcer. According to research conducted at Stanford University, fresh cabbage juice was shown to both restore the gastrointestinal tract and heal ulcers in only seven days!
  • Agricultural scientists found 36 anthocyanins in red cabbage, which may help improve brain function, promote heart health, and provide cancer protection.

  1. Hi Hong, Looking at your salad makes me drooling. The recipe is straightforward and I am going to try this this weekend. Just one question on thing like 1/2 cup spinach. How to measure this. Can I use gram or ounce? Just want to use exactly recipe you have. Also you post is educational. I never think about Sulfur when I buy food and supplement. From now on, Sulfur is on my shopping list. Thanks for the nice work!

      Hello Anthiny Hu,

      Thank you for visiting and commenting. I am glad you find the article educational and that you are going to incorporate more sulfur foods in your diet.

      I use measuring cup to measure all my ingredients. You can also use gram or ounce. So for 1/2 cup of spinach, it would be 64 grams or 2.25 oz. All the ingredients don’t have to be exact measurement that I have on the article. As long as the measurements don’t deviate too much for the recipe, it should be just as delicious.

      I hope you get a chance to try it out, and let me know how the salad turns out for you. Don’t hesitate to reach out to me if you have any question. I am happy to help.

  2. Avocado and mango, that’s a pretty inspired combo. I remember I had a green papaya salad once in a London Thai restaurant called Nahm, it reminded me of that.

  6. The salad looks yummy! Plus the way you described it, I really feel like having one right now. I love mango and heard about the benefits of sulfur. As I work with children with autism, their parents have used sulfur in their children’s diet, believing that sulfur might reduce symptoms of autism. I can’t wait to show this recipe to them, I am sure they are going to love it!

      Hi Zhuang,

      Thank you for stopping by and for your comment. This salad is so delicious and I hope you try it out.

      Sulfur offers so many benefits; feel free to read my organic sulfur benefits article for more information. Bless your heart for working with children with autism. It’s a tough job and I admire you for doing that.

      I know from my research, according to the west coast organic sulfur project, organic sulfur has amazingly reversed autism in 12 children. Parents have reported these children with increased participation in activities, more involvement in their environment, and development of simple speech. I hope these children can benefit from organic sulfur and sulfur from their diet.

      I have a couple other sulfur food recipes that you may wish to check them out. They are also very delicious, easy to make, and very healthy.

      I would really appreciate it if you can share this information to those that you think might benefit from it. Let me know if you have any question.

      Have a great day:)

      Hello Marlinda,

      Thank you for visiting and for your comment. Avocado contains the highest sulfur among all fruits. Besides the many other health benefits sulfur has to offer, it also has the ability to boost collagen, protein and keratin levels, nutrients that are necessary for the health and maintenance of skin, nails and hair.

      I really believe that the positive things you are experiencing are likely associated with the high sulfur content in the avocados you are consuming. I am happy to hear that from you.

      I hope you get a chance to try this avocado mango salad recipe and hopefully you like it as well. Have fun making and eating this delicious salad.

      Have a great day,

  11. Wow this seems like a good recipe for like a summer dinner! Is there a substitute for the mango though? I have a family member who is allergic to mango. I also love all the colors that are in the salad as well! I usually eat raw veggies, I don’t really care for them to be mushy plus when you cook them down to that point all the vitamins are then in the water and you might as well just drink the water for the nutrients.
    Thank you so much for the recipe! I will be making a similar version of this this summer!

    1. Author

      Hi Melisa,

      Thank you for visiting and for your comment. I am sorry to hear that your family member is allergic to mango. You don’t have to use mango in this recipe. There are alternatives. You can use any fruits you like. I’ve tried the recipe with tangerine, apple, and peach. They are unique in their own way, they are just as delicious. I used to eat cooked veggies, but I realized boiling them in the water and exposing them to heat negate them of much nutritional content. I believe consuming raw vegetables is a better option; you get more vitamins and mineral that ways.

      You are very welcome for the recipe. I hope you try it and hopefully you like the recipe.

    I cant say I’m a big reader of recipe or even food blogs but this really caught my attention – and I love the way you’ve added the nutritional benefits of each of the main ingredients too. I have one question, my daughter has a strange allergy to Avocado – I wonder if you have any suggestions for a good replacement in this recipe? I think I’m definitely going to save this recipe and have a go for myself but I’m sure she would benefit from all the goodness in it!

      You can try using tomato instead of avocado in this recipe; I think it will still taste good. I hope you try it and hopefully you like this avocado mango salad recipe. Let me know if you have any question.

  15. I am glad that I found your website and your great recipes. I look forward to trying this one as well. I never put much consideration into sulfur or tracked how much of it we may or may not consume. Likely not nearly enough based on our typical diet. I look forward to learning more and trying more of your recipes. Thank you!

      Hello Christina,

      Thank you for visiting and for your comment. If our diet is primarily processed and refined foods, it is very likely we are not getting the amount of sulfur we need for our body in order in function optimally.

  16. I really enjoy reading your articles Hong and always learn something new. I would never think about sulfur having anything to do with possibly helping arthritis or joint pain. I dunno..you hear sulfur, you think eggs…gas? lol.
    I see that you are a nurse. What first got you interested in Sulfur..and enough so that you yourself started taking the supplement as well?

    1. Author

      Hi Jennifer,

      Thank you for visiting my site and for your comment. I am happy to hear that you enjoyed reading my articles and learned new things.

      Sulfur is an important mineral in people suffering from arthritis or joint pain. Sulfur helps the body to form new joint, collagen, and muscle tissue while reducing inflammatory responses that contribute to swelling and stiffness in people with arthritis.

      My father had suffered from arthritis for many years, and no medicine has ever helped him. In fact, his problem deteriorated over the years. I couldn’t just watch my father’s health decline like that. I knew I had to do something. So I got him started on gold standard organic sulfur, and it has transformed his health dramatically. Today he is pain free, medication free, and he is in a much better state of health than he’s ever been.

      I used to think sulfur had something to do with rotten egg, it is poisonous, and that it is something you never want to be near. I had always thought sulfur was bad for you until I further investigated it and realized that it is one of the most important minerals for our body. I wrote an article that talks sulfur compound differences. You can check it out for more information.

      Yes, I am a nurse. I used to suffer from severe acne, rosacea, and many food allergies. I had tried many remedies to resolve my skin issues, and nothing has ever worked for me. I also refused to take any medicine for my food allergies, I knew medicine wasn’t going to cure my problems and I didn’t want to deal with all the nasty side effects. You can read my full story here.

      I was later introduced to organic sulfur and decided to give it a try. It is so amazing how something as simple as a mineral can transform one’s health dramatically. I am on this mineral for about 1 1/2 year and now my skin is much better, I no longer have the allergic reactions to foods that I used to experience. And the only thing I am taking now is gold standard organic sulfur and Dr. Willard Water to help enhance mineral absorption.

      My family and I have all benefited from this mineral and I felt the need to disseminate this vital information to as many people as possible, and perhaps this is something others are searching for that can also transform their health and end the unnecessary sufferings.

      If you know someone that could benefit from this mineral, I would really appreciate it if you could share this information with others. If you have any question, feel free to ask me. I will get back to you as soon as possible.

      All the best,
      Hong

  17. I had to smile when you said you never ate raw veggies growing up… I find it an easy “out” making dinner for my family so I do it once every week or two – make a platter of raw veggies with some sort of dip, or serve a “garden salad” full of raw veggies. Tasty and easy!
    That mango salad looks AMAZING. I recently discovered a tip for adding mango to salad that saves a lot of time: buy a bag of frozen diced mango instead of the fresh. Remove as much as you need for the salad, and dice up the frozen (or semi-thawed) pieces. Tastes just as great in the salad as fresh, but is WAY easier!
    I wish there was an easy tip for avocados… whenever I buy them, they are either not ripe enough to use right away, or suddenly overripe. Any ideas!
    I like the dressing idea (lime & honey) – I’ll need to try that!

      Hi Marlaine,

      Thank you for visiting my site and for your comment.

      The raw vegetable salad is so delicious. Had it for the first time, I am now hooked. It does take quite a bit of time to peel and cut the fresh mango. The frozen mango sounds like a great tip. It would definitely save a lot of time and mess. But I was wondering would the texture of the mango change after it is thawed?

      When choosing the perfect avocado for your salad, it is important that you pay attention to the avocado’s color and how it feels when you squeeze them.

      In term of the avocado’s color, ripe avocados are typically a dark, almost black color with hints of green when they’re ripe. If you are going to use the avocado right away, choose one that is dark. And if you plan to use one in a couple of days, it is a good idea to choose the one that’s greener.

      Another way to make sure you are buying avocado that’s perfectly green and creamy on the inside and free from ugly brown spots is to check under the stem. This part of the avocado holds a sneak peak for what’s going on under the skin. Peel back the small stem or cap at the top of the avocado. If it comes away easily and you find green underneath, then you’ve got a good avocado that’s ripe and ready to eat.
      On the other hand, if you peel back the stem and find brown underneath, and you’re likely to find brown spots inside the fruit, then the avocado is overripe. And, if the stem doesn’t come off, the fruit is not yet ripe enough to eat.

      You can also gently squeeze the avocado to determine its ripeness. A ripe avocado should yield to firm, gentle pressure, but shouldn’t feel overly soft or mushy. If an avocado feels overly soft, it’s overripe so you should avoid buying it.
      If an avocado feels firm or hard, it isn’t ripe yet. It would be a good idea to purchase it only if you plan to use it several days in the future.

      Just keep in mind, the harder or firmer that an avocado is, and the longer that it will likely take for it to ripen.

      My suggestion is if you are planning to buy several avocados, it’s a good idea to choose them at various stages of ripeness. That way, you’ll have some that you can use right way, some that you can use in a couple of days, and some that you can use in five to six days in the future.

      I love the lime and honey combination. I hope you try the avocado mango recipe and hopefully you like it.

      I hope I answered your question. If you have any other questions or concerns, please feel free to ask me. And I will get back to you as soon as possible.

  18. So far all of your recipes have been delicious, so I’m looking forward to trying this one next! I love a healthy meal that also helps to satisfy my sweet tooth with the mango and honey. I’ve never tried them together with avocado, but I like all the ingredients separately, so I imagine they’ll be great. I often have mango with grilled fish-what do you think about adding that in there for some added Omega-3? What might you cook the fish with to complement the flavors of the salad?
    Thanks again for the awesome recipe Hong!

    1. Author

      Hello Jason,

      I appreciate your comment and your time for visiting my site.

      I am happy to hear that you found all my recipes delicious. The mango and avocado are great combination. They go well together. Feel free to add some grilled fish for a complete meal and extra deliciousness. The benefits of omega 3 are always extra bonus.
      I usually don’t like my food in heavy sauce and I also don’t like the store bought sauces as they are normally not healthy and loaded with preservatives.

      I like to use natural seasonings, such as fresh lemon juice and herbs. I’ve marinated salmon in fresh lemon juice, salt, and freshly ground black pepper and store it in the refrigerator for 20 to 30 minutes in the past. And then I would grill the salmon and top it off with some fresh herbs, such and fresh chopped basil, cilantro, or parsley. It was honestly the best grilled salmon I’ve ever tasted.

      Feel free to add your grilled salmon to your avocado mango salad recipe for a complete meal. I think you might like it. Let me know if you have any questions.

      All the best,

  19. Mango and avocado are SO delicious together, and set up such a nice contrast. You know, I’d never heard of the relationship between sulfur and connective tissue. I have a great deal of connective tissue pain and regularly get connective tissue massage, and I wonder if I’d notice a difference if I started supplementing with the sulfur you recommended. I will say this: I CRAVE avocados and have to eat them at least once a week…but wonder if I’m getting everything I need from them even at that frequency.

      Hi Penelope,

      Thank you for your comment.

      Avocado and mango go well together. They have very distinct taste on their own. However, when all the ingredients listed are mixed together, it is an amazing and delicious combination. Sulfur makes up the vital amino acids in your body and is involved in protein synthesis, as well as several enzyme reactions. It helps with the production of collagen, which is a substance that forms connective tissues, cell structure and artery walls.

      People with connective tissues problems can benefit from eating a sulfur rich diet or through supplementation. The product I use is called Gold Standard organic sulfur. I wrote a review of this product. Please feel free to check it out for more information.
      I have personally been taking organic sulfur to increase my sulfur intake along with the sulfur rich foods. My acne and rosacea are much better now. And I no longer experience the food allergies symptoms that I used to experience.

      My dad had suffered from arthritis for many years and was taking bunch medications with no relief. I finally convinced him to start taking organic sulfur. He is on it for a little over a year. Today he is medication free, pain free, and has increased mobility.
      I eat sulfur food everyday and it is important that we do that daily. Since sulfur is not normally stored in our body, it is important that we supply our body with this nutrient daily as it is passed every 12 hours after being ingested.

      If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to reach out to me.

      All the best,

      Hi Gosia,

      Thank you for your comment and for visiting my site. I am glad you found the article informative.

      I grew up in the family where we only ate cooked vegetables. My family always thought eating raw vegetables is not healthy and can lead to food poisoning. But after I did some research, I found out it wasn’t exactly the case. Then I decided to be a little adventurous and wanted to try raw vegetable salad, and honestly it was the best thing I had, so refreshing, tasty, healthy, and best of all, it was super sulfur rich.

      The avocado mango salad is not only appetizing to the palate; it is appetizing to the eye as well. I hope you get to try the avocado mango salad. I am sure you are going to love it.

  22. I like adding avocado to my salads. It is so delicious. As a matter of fact, once I add avocado, I have no need for dressing. I will definitely try this recipe for Thanksgiving. The ingredients are some of my favorite for salads. I have never tried adding mango to a salad though, but I can imagine that it should add extra nutrients and taste.

      Hey Carol,

      I love avocado in my salad as well. I hope you like this avocado mango salad. The mango makes this salad even tastier with its sweetness.

  23. Hi Hong, what an absolutely yummy salad! I am going to be trying that for my dinner tomorrow. I am a plant based eater and am starting to get on the raw food path as I know it is where 100% health is at. We shouldn’t be destroying all those wonderful nutrients with heat like we do as most veg is at its prime raw. And I believe an avocado a day really will keep the doctor away, it is my number one super food and pairing it with the greens in a salad will actually enhance the nutrients in the greens. And thank you for the information on sulfur, luckily I think I probably get enough in my diet already.

      Hi Stefanie,

      Thank you for visiting and for your comment. I hope you like this avocado mango salad recipe.

      Ever since I made my first salad, I am hooked on raw vegetables. It not only makes me feel good, but it is also healthy, nutritious, and delicious. I totally understand and agree that exposing vegetables in high heat destroys most of the vitamins and minerals. I know that is very true with sulfur. Sulfur gets destroyed or its content decreases significantly the longer the vegetables are expose to heat. So I try to eat vegetables in their natural raw state as much as possible.

      Avocado is one of my favorite foods; it goes well with any vegetable. Avocado has so many benefits. It has lots of good fat, and the good fat helps to improve our immune function, promote brain health, and great for weight loss. It is an awesome alkalizing food for people that wanting to neutralize the acidity of their body to improve their ph level.

      Since you are vegan, it is unlikely you are sulfur deficient. I think you consume plenty of sulfur from your diet. I find lots of motivation and inspiration from reading your blog. I learned many things I didn’t know before. So thank you very much for that.
