  1. I love mango salsa AND avacados, so I can`t wait to try this recipe! Also the article about our fave natural food brands is scary and sad. I love Kashi and I´ve been eating Stoneyfield Farms since I was a kid!

  2. I LOVE this recipe. Mango and avocado and cilantro might just be the best combination evah!

  3. Mmm I would totally just eat this by itself out of the bowl! All of my favorite ingredients!
