Fresh, fruity, and healthy, this MANGO AVOCADO SALAD comes packed with crunchy greens, protein-packed chickpeas, and a creamy herbed yogurt dressing for the best 15-minute dinner ever.
Fresh and easy avocado salad. Can you think of anything better?
The answer is no. There is nothing in this world better than a big bowl of fresh avocado salad. At least at this very moment. In a few hours, the correct answer will probably be chocolate cake.
BUT! for now, the correct answer is THIS avocado salad with chickpeas and hardboiled eggs (yaaaas protein!), sweet cherry tomatoes, and creamy herb-ey yogurt dressing.
Now, before you turn up your nose and say something like ohmygod a mango on a salad!? Let me just ask all you haters out there if you’ve ever tried it before?
For those that said yes, but still hate it, weeeelllll, we’re just going to have to work on that.
BUT! For those of you that said no…
…why are you still here?!
What are you waiting for?
JK! There’s no rush. You can stay for as long as you want.
But don’t mind me, I’ll be eating this awesome avocado salad filled with juicy chunks of mango 🙂
