    What a wonderful juxtaposition of flavors and textures! I made this as more of a chopped salad for family dinner, and we absolutely loved it. The rof dressing made extra and I think it would make a wonderful dressing for a cabbage slaw. This salad is a new favorite.

    I honestly didn't know what top expect with this one but I love avocados and mangos, so figured "why not?". It actually turned out to be a delicious salad. I felt the salad was best tossed together rather than arranged, allowing one to enjoy the ways the components maintained their own integrity while playing together quite harmoniously in each bite. There are many steps, but the carrots can actually be made in advance and the recipe states they will keep for 3 weeks in the refrigerator. Prepping the carrots ahead would be useful. The heat of the parsley, scallion, habanero dressing plays nicely with the sweetness of the mango. The carrots are also sweet/hot but delicious, with a bit of a caramelized flavor, but that may have just been due to the Asian palm sugar which was the only kind of brown sugar I had in the house. The avocado adds a nice creaminess, and actually softens the punch of the pepper (I used habanero)
