Mango Avocado Bean Salad

Mango Avocado Bean Salad

This Mango Avocado Bean Salad is a bit of summer on your plate. It is fresh, simple, colorful and has a nice crunchy texture. The chili adds a bit of spice and the mango adds some sweetness and freshness. I love the combination of sweet mango, spicy chili and creamy avocado. I remember having tasted this combination of flavors before when I was on a yoga retreat in Bali. This dish takes me back down memory lane. I can picture myself eating this lovely fresh salad in the shade on a lovely Bali afternoon. The blazing sun outside, coconut trees towering high above me, a lovely sea breeze, colorful flowers and exotic fruits growing on the trees around me. When I think of Bali, I think of color and all those amazing tropical fruits. Perhaps this is my idea of creating my own tropical and sunny island in the heart of Amsterdam.
