You can find this recipe featured on my Pulled Beef & Avocado Salad Taco post. I will make this on weekends to enjoy when we are relaxing on the patio, or as a topper to our tacos. The creaminess from the avocado, the crunch of the radish, and the sweetness from the mangos are an amazing combination.

I am currently following Dr. Will Cole’s Elimin8 protocol, and I am unable to consume nightshades. So, I wanted to create a fresh salsa type dish that I could enjoy in place of your typical guacamole or tomato salsa. I substituted the tomatoes and peppers for radishes. I really enjoy the texture here from the radish to offset the smooth textures from the mangos and avocados. Of course, the lime really brings the dish to life. I used two whole limes, because I love vibrant citrus flavors. However, start with the juice from 1 lime and see how you feel then add more to your preference. Enjoy friends!
