Quick and simple, this mango and avocado salad is greater than the sum of its parts. Honey is quickly whisked with fresh lime juice, salt and pepper to form a dressing. Then, sliced mango and avocado are added, and it’s all gently tossed together.
The fresh flavors and bright colors make it festive enough for a dinner with friends, but its simplicity means it will work for a busy weeknight too.

To prepare it, tilapia is cooked in a non-stick skillet, alongside lime, butter and fresno chilis. Sautéed over a medium heat, the butter…
In my 20’s, meals could take hours to make, because there wasn’t a small person who lived with me that cared how quickly she was fed. But now, there is. She also comes with 1,000 activities, which means we need meals to happen quickly. So today, I’m spilling secrets on how I make dinner happen…
