Avocado, Chili and Mandarin Salad

Serves 6-8
by Tenina Holder

A beautiful bright salad to add to a casual Christmas menu. A little more Australian than most Christmas food, but then, I am an Aussie. Cue: Dashing through the bush, in a rusty Holden ute ...

So just for the uninitiated, this recipe does appear in the Merry Christmix cookbooks, (not telling which one, you need to get them both to get your Christmixing on track!) Don’t be shy...and we’re going to include the video version of the online Christmix class I did recently...it will be emailed to all who buy the bundle...go sort it out, then your Christmas will also be sorted. We promise. Happy Mixing!
