AVOCADO, MANGO and GHANAIAN BASIL SALAD

dsc_1213-1

I knew I had to put a smile on Mums face, as I quickly dashed into the Kitchen to create a quick healthy meal.

The organic and naturally sun ripened Mangoes with the creamy Avocado (which is popularly known as ‘Pear Nku’ in Ghana) makes this dish incredible. It’s simple but packed with natural flavours and a must try recipe.

 

I diced the sun-ripened Mangoes, creamy Avocado that I purchased from a beautiful lady into a bowl, drizzled it with Olive oil and the juice of half a Tangelo.

Whilst mixing the Avocado, Mango and Ghanaian Basil together my thoughts wandered to my little brother, as my throat choked with tears.

I avoid talking about my little brothers death, however the days are numbered for his funeral. I’m aware I cannot run away from it………

Mum enjoyed her portion, gave me ‘the’ nod of approval and thanked me. I liked that❤️.  I suggested Mum and I went exploring , which was a perfect thing to do.

I hope you’re inspired to try the recipe.
