  • 1 Mango sliced
  • 1 Avocado sliced
  • ¼ Cup Red Onion thinly sliced


  • Slice an avocado and lay the slices on a serving plate.
  • Now, slice a mango and put in on top of the avocado.
  • Next, make very thin slices of red onion and spread them over the avocado and mango.
  • Finally, drizzle sherry vinegar over the top and season with salt and freshly cracked pepper.


Tips For Success
  • Choose ripe fruit for this recipe. The avocado skin should be dark and it should be a bit soft under pressure from your thumb. You can tell mangos are ripe in much the same way. 
  •  Cut the avocado in half using a paring knife. Carefully, remove the seed. Then, peel away the skin, leaving clean halves.
  • To slice a mango, first, peel the outside of it with a vegetable peeler or paring knife. Then, cut the fattest side of the mango away from the seed. Next cut the thin part alongside the seed. Finally, cut those chunks into thin slices. I wish I had some miracle hack for this. The truth is that ripe mangoes are a bit slippery and a bit tricky and you should just take your time to cut them safely.
  • Cut red onion paper thin. Red onion is a great flavor, but it is strong and can easily overwhelm the more delicate flavors of avocado and mango. Nice thin slices will give you just the right amount of that great flavor.
