Raw Strawberry Mango Avocado Tacos are the perfect refreshing and easy spring or summer meal when it’s just too warm to cook.
Do you crave more raw fruit and vegetables when the weather is warm? I know I do!
During the last heat wave, instead of turning to my usual Tropical Chickpea Salad, I decided to create raw tacos using some of my favorite produce. These include strawberries, tomatoes, mango, and avocado, plus some fresh herbs.
If you’re not sure how to cut a mango, check out the video in my post for Mango Avocado Salsa to learn an easy way to do it.
Before we get started, I want to share with you a kitchen tool I have been using almost daily.
While I love using fresh herbs like basil, cilantro and mint in recipes, but sometimes it’s tricky and time-consuming to chop them.
That’s why I purchased these Herb Scissors.
All you need to do is pile up your herbs and cut them with scissors that have five blades on each side instead of one. And it even comes with a little tool to remove the cut herbs from the blades. It makes cleaning the scissors quick and easy.
I normally don’t like to have a ton of gadgets filling up my kitchen drawers, but these Herb Scissors are definitely worth owning. They make me want to add more fresh herbs to my meals because it’s just so easy!
