Ham, Avocado and Mango Salad

Leave a comment

While this picture may or may not appeal to your sensibilities and tastebuds on sight, please let me reassure you that it is indeed very delicious as well as being the easiest thing in the world to prepare.
That being said, avocados and mangoes are a tiny bit on the preparation heavy side if you consider cutting tomatoes or apples but they do taste so very wonderful that all fiddliness is instantly forgiven.

This is a knock together lunch that I indulge in whenever possible and at this time of year it is entirely possible to indulge on a several times a week basis. I like to use fresh of the leg ham that I cut myself. It is impossible to get slices of it in store here so the only alternative is to buy a whole ham and slice it myself, which I do. This does lead me to distraction on occasion as my other weakness is fresh cut ham on toast and as I am avoiding bread at the moment I do get the odd craving that I have to battle with during the slicing and serving. But I just have to look at my plate full of avocado and mango to feel a little better about the whole thing.

Ham, Avocado and Mango Salad

1 large mango, skinned, seeded and roughly diced (I do the hedgehog thing with mine but cut it how you like)
1 avocado, skinned, seeded and roughly diced
Ham, fresh off the bone, roughly chopped

Mix it all together and grab a fork. I don’t season or dress this with anything, I love it just how it is but feel free to jazz it up with balsamic or pepper or whatever you fancy.

40, on my way to 40 something...Still not sure what I want to do when I grow up, retire probably... Food obsessed, love to cook it, read about it, eat it... Chock full of useless information that crowds out the useful stuff sometimes.
