Mozambican Avocado salad is lovely and light.
It is called Salada pera de abacate in Portuguese, the official language of Mozambique.
It is a bit different as it pairs avocado, with tomato and peaches.
The dressing is really good and will be my summer go to dressing. It is citrusy with lemon but it is the peach syrup along with some herbs that make it truly unique and wonderful.
We enjoyed this salad along with the peri peri chicken and fries. it was the perfect accompaniment.
A light and lovely salad that would be enjoyed with just about anything.
I was lucky enough to use fresh mixed greens right out of our International Cuisine garden for this one which makes it always extra special.
