Sea salt to taste ( didn't add)
Ground black pepper to taste ( didn't add)
1 mango, diced (about 1 cup)
1 avocado, diced (about 1 cup)
1 tablespoon fresh cilantro- finely chopped
Sprinkle of sunflower seeds

Directions:

In a large bowl, whisk together the garlic, orange juice, lime juice, orange zest, honey and olive oil.
 Taste and adjust seasonings.
 Add mango and avocado. 
Toss to combine.
Garnish with sunflower seeds 
 Serve immediately.

  4. This looks delicious and I love avocados and think I'll try this. I may have to use frozen mangos though. Thanks for posting this.

  5. We tried this Sunday and we both loved it. Must make it again soon. Fresh mangos would have been way better, because the thawed ones were cut into too big a chunks and kind of hard. I used salad almonds because I did not have sunflower seeds but everything else was the same. I like a touch of salt and pepper on my avocados so I seasoned them and then added them to the rest.
