For years, I’ve had the idea that one summer weekend we’re just gonna hop in the car, brave the traffic up 95 and cruise up the coast of Maine.

Living only 4 hours away, this really isn’t some grand vacation plan and yet, it’s never happened.

In my head, it’d be the quintessential New England weekend: rocky beaches with frigid water to walk through, gorgeous blooming hydrangeas, quaint bed & breakfasts and plenty of roadside stops for ice cream and lobster rolls.

Ok, let’s be honest, it’s really all about the ice cream and lobster (lobstah?) rolls.

I love me some good lobster rolls.

From what I know, there are two pretty distinct lobster roll camps, the butter people (usually served warm) and the mayo people (usually served cold).

I’m in camp mayo but I don’t love mayo-laden salads.

Which is why this lobster mango avocado salad came to be.

It’s got all the creaminess of the classic mayo roll without any of the fat and honestly, with lime juice, zest and cilantro, it’s kinda killing it on the flavor front too.

Oh, and mangos!

Maine might disagree but the tropical twist and sweetness the mango brings to this salad, really sets it apart.

Did you know that trick about cutting mangos? I feel like an idiot for not figuring that out sooner in life! All these years spent fighting with the odd shaped fruit for nothing.

The National Mango Board’s video was pretty much a life changing 2 minutes over here!

1 cup of mangos is just 100 calories and contains over 20 vitamins and minerals making it one heck of a tasty superfood, step aside, kale!

Totally makes up for that buttered toasted bun because you know you want it over the lettuce cup. Don’t lie.

Hi there! I had fun cruising around your website/blog. Your recipe for Lobster Mango Avocado Salad caught my eye. Here in Hawaiii we're blessed to have fresh fruits and veggies year around and a Farmers' Market just down the street. They had everything I needed except the lobster. Our friendly market is just two blocks away and they had the lobsters. I had fun making this. Had company for lunch and we all just loved this!!! YUUUUM! Thanks for sharing.

How did this NOT pop up in my subscription feed?? I am so glad I found this adorable video! I don't have lobster very often--only on occasion when I go out--but I seriously love the taste of it. Making a healthy salad with mangoes, avocados and lobster sounds like such a good idea! The lettuce wraps-serving style is definitely on my recipe to-do list!
