Whisk together the ingredients for the dressing and place in a jar/ bowl and set aside
Combine all of the vegetables and mango (if using) for the salad in a bowl.
Add the chopped avocado only if you plan on eating straight away.
Drizzle the dressing over entire salad
Chop your veggies ahead of time. If you're really pushed for time or simply want to be a head of yourself then I would suggest chopping up your veggies and storing them in a zip lock bag ready to use (excluding the avocado).
Avocado inclusion. I would advise cutting your avocado as soon as you're ready to eat the salad. Don't leave it soak overnight or for a length of time. In other words, let it be one of the last things to add to your salad bowl.
Mix things up. There's no reason why you cannot add some other herbs like parsley, thyme to the salad.
For best results. Allow the bowl of salad to rest in the refrigerator for 15 minutes with the dressing on so the flavours really infuse.
Be diverse. That's right, think outside the box, serve this salad as a salsa or with some corn chips.
