Brazilian-style Mango & Avocado Salad with Lime Dressing

Avocado is a fruit, just like tomato, however it hasn’t crossed my mind to try it in a fruit salad, until recently… It turned out to taste great with some sweet and sour brown sugar and lime salad dressing I made, family loved it, especially that I served it with Brazilian BBQ chicken but it would go well with other baked meats and poultry or generally spicy dishes.
