« SCROLL PHOTOS LEFT TO RIGHT »

This week's new recipe is a delicious mango and avocado salad with toasted coconut and Thai basil. It's a super fresh Thai/Vietnamese inspired salad recipe. Creamy, sweet, and full of texture and crunch.

To make a ‘meal of it’ you could serve this salad with grilled chicken, a squirt of kewpie mayo, and a sprinkle of sesame seeds. Other great protein options are BBQ prawns, grilled steak, or BBQ/grilled tofu.

Enjoy the recipe and as always please let me know if you have any questions.
