Tips and FAQs!
Can this salad be made in advance?
Once the salad is tossed together with the dressing, it will start to lose its crunch over time. I recommend tossing it together right before serving. But, if you want to prepare in advance you could slice and dice the ingredients the day before (except for the avocado which will brown) and mix up the dressing. Then before serving, dice the avocado, and toss everything together.
I don’t like a certain ingredient, can I omit?
Absolutely! This salad is very customizable. Can’t find a ripe avocado at the store? Leave it out but maybe add extra mango or edamame? Don’t like almonds? Swap in a different nut!
