This salad barely needs any dressing. Fresh, ripe ingredients provide all the wonderful flavor you need.


  • 1 ripe mango
  • 1 ripe avocado
  • 2 ripe plum tomatoes
  • 1/2 red onion diced
  • 1/2 red bell pepper chopped
  • 1/2 to 1 cup chopped cilantro
  • 1/2 to 1 hot chili diced very small
  • 1 clove garlic (optional)
  • 3-4 cups baby arugula
  • 2 limes
  • Dash of salt

Cube and peel the mango and avocado and place in large bowl. Cut tomato into bite-sized pieces and add to bowl. Add cilantro and hot pepper. Mix well.
