    Watermelon, Mango, and Avocado Salad (Gluten-Free)

    Reviewed and edited by a celiac disease expert.

    I can’t say enough about the wonder of no-cook meals. When the weather heats up and you want to spend as little time as possible in a hot kitchen, easy to make salads like these are perfect. This particular salad is so delicious, refreshing and juicy, that you’ll happily welcome a few drips running down the side of your mouth. Tossing in some arugula or baby greens is a nice compliment, but the fruit stands beautifully on its own.

    Ingredients:
    4 cups watermelon, 1 or 2-inch chunks
    2 mangos, chopped
    2 avocado, chopped
    1 cup cherry tomatoes, halved
    1 red onion, thinly sliced
    ¼ cup mint
    ¼ cup olive oil
    2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
    1 lime, juice and zest
    Salt and pepper to taste

    Directions:
    In a small bowl, combine vinegar with lime juice and zest. Whisk in olive oil and season with a pinch of salt and pepper. Add sliced onions to the bowl and marinate for about 10 minutes.

    In the meantime, add watermelon, mango, avocado and tomato chunks to a large bowl. Toss with dressing and onions. Finish with mint, thinly sliced or chopped.

    I make a similar salad without the lemon and tomatoes, but I have never added watermelon! Yum! Great recipe...and I have all of the ingredients! Thanks for sharing, Jefferson!

    This is a keeper - Such great flavors! The only thing I'd change is the ratio: I'd make the melon, avocado, tomato and mango all equal. I cut each to the size of the halved cherry tomatoes, which made for ideal forkfuls of flavor.
