How do you tell if a mango is ripe?

The worst thing is to have a mango that is not ripe and too hard

If a  mango is ripe enough to eat, it is soft. You can tell this by pressing gently on it with with your fingers. The skin will yield slightly  showing a dent  

If your mango is too hard you simply need to leave it for a while before eating

 

How do you make your Mango, Black bean & avocado salad? 

Well to be honest it could not be simpler 

Simple mix all your chopped ingredients together and dig in. Below on the recipe card is a full method 

 

How long can I keep my mango & avocado Salad? 

I tend to prep it an hour or so before I need it but you can make it a little more in advance 

Just be careful that your avocado doesn’t go brown, so make sure you have plenty of lime juice on it

Cover and pop it in the fridge 

Leftovers are also great the next day! Again it needs refrigerating!

This salad also happens to be vegan and the black beans add that delicious protein
