MANGO AND AVOCADO SALAD WITH A BAOBAB DRESSING


A couple of weeks ago I spotted an interesting company on Instagram called Aduna.

What I really liked about Aduna is the vibrancy of the brand, its positive energy and mission to showcase the the vitality of Africa.

They sell superfruit powders and energy bars ethically sourced from baobab and moringa trees in Ghana and Senegal.  Baobab and moringa are rich in vitamins, packed with antioxidants and are just generally good for you. I was intrigued, wanted to try some and sent off for free samples.

There are lots of recipes on the Aduna website which offer foodie inspiration. I decided however to create a fruity mango and avocado salad with a baobab dressing perfect which I think is perfect for summer.

This salad is so simple to make and the dressing made with Baobab superfruit powder gives it an amazing kick. 


The salad is completely vegan but would also work perfectly alongside fish or chicken! 


Ingredients

2 Ripe avocado 
1 Large mango (not too ripe)
1/2 a bag of rocket
1/2 a bag of watercress
1 Tablespoons of mixed seeds (optional)

For the dressing 
1 Teaspoon of Aduna Baobab Superfruit Powder
2 Tablespoons of olive oil
2 Tablespoons of water
1 Teaspoon of lime juice (optional)
1 Teaspoon of white wine vinegar
Sea Salt

Method

1. Place the rocket and watercress onto a plate or into a bowl.
2. Mix the Baobab powder, olive oil, lime juice and white wine vinegar. Season with pepper and sea salt and mix well.
3. Chop the mango into cubes and avocado into slices. Place on top of the rocket and watercress. 
4. Pour over the dressing and sprinkle  the mixed seeds.
