This tasty and tropical salad is a great side dish that uses ingredients like fresh pineapple, avocado, red onion and orange juice to create a perfect flavor combination.
Creamy avocados are major players when it comes to providing healthy, good-for-you fats and pineapple fruit is rich in vitamins, minerals and health benefiting proteolytic compound bromelain that digest food by breaking down protein.

Surprise! This rich, velvety avocado soup contains no cream or milk. Pureeing in the blender fills the mixture with air, making it thicker. Add more broth if you like a thinner consistency. It's delicious topped with the Crab-and-Mango Garnish or on its own.
