Simple, Sexy and Ready for the Summer! Avocado-Mango Salad with Mango-Lime Vinagrette!

If this salad doesn't scream summertime, I don't know what does.  It is super light, well balanced and super easy to make!  I think it took me under 5 minutes to make both the salad and the dressing.

Every time I eat this salad, I picture myself on a beach in Mexico, enjoying the fresh mangoes and avocados that fell right from the tree.  Or at some sort of spa right on the ocean.  Enjoy this with your detox water and you will feel refreshed and rejuvenated!

Avocado-Mango Salad with Mango-Lime Vinagrette

 Again, I went with an oil-free dressing.  A tip for those making these salad dressings:  I put them all in squeeze bottles and refrigerate them so I can use them throughout the week.  That way, you don't have to take out the blender ever time you want your favorite salad dressing.

1 bag baby spinach
1/4 sliced avocado
1 sliced avocado
1 sliced mango

1/4 mango
1 lime
garlic powder
1/4-1/2 c water

In a bowl, toss all salad ingredients together.  In a blender, mix all dressing ingredients together, starting with 1/4 cup of water.  Add more if it is too thick.  Pour your dressing on your salad and serve!  That's it.
Told you- under 5 minutes!
