Free Healthy Recipe - Avocado, Mango and Pinenut salad

Dairy free, Low carbohydrate, Wheat Free

Copyright John Paul Urizar

It's simple and exquisite - the flavours of avocado and mango work so well. Combined with pinenuts, rumoured to be aphrodisiacs in ancient Greece and you create the ultimate seductress - a healthy entree for lovers. Choose slightly underripe mangos when making this dish. Avocado and pinenuts are both good sources of magnesium useful for relieving symptoms of PMT.

¼ cup pine nuts
30 ml olive oil
2 small avocados

Dry roast the pinenuts in a small frying pan with no oil.

Combine the olive oil, lemon and mustard in a small jar. Slice the mango and avocado and arrange on small entree plates.
Drizzle with dressing and top with pinenuts.

Note: As pinenuts are high in polyunsaturated fats they can turn rancid easily. Buy small packs and use them quickly. Store them in a sealed packet in the refrigerator.
