Winter Salad Series - Number 2: Avocado, Mango & Mozzarella Salad

Here is another salad, cold this time, which is definitely one of my very favourite salads. I love the combination of the sweetness of the mango, the softness of the avocado and the creaminess of the mozzarella. And it looks like a pretty sunshine in the plate, exactly what you need in the winter.

I hope you’ve had a good start to the year and maybe decided to undertake a detox or cleanse – there seems to be numerous food blogs giving you advice on the subject at the moment. Last weekend I had a try at Ashtanga Vinyasa Yoga which is a powerful form of yoga turning yoga postures into a dynamic flow. It was hard and hot! The teacher explained that the building up of heat and sweat is a very powerful detox, helping the body eliminate impurities...something to think about adopting if you’re doing a body cleanse...

Note on the avocado, mango, mozza salad: this is the simple way I usually prepare it, but a few adds-on would also go very well with it such as alfalfa sprouts, walnuts or fresh mint.

Oh, and by the way, I cut my hand while opening the bottle of balsamic vinegar...a little reminder to always be mindful in the kitchen while using tools and the likes!
