Ahi Mango Salad

Updated: Jul 4

Ahi tuna, mango, avocado, and sauce giving Hawaiian vibes

The only time I went to Hawaii was when I was five to Maui…I don’t really remember it though. I dream of going back all the time to any of the islands, and this dish took me there: Ahi Mango Salad. Fresh ahi tuna with sweet mango, jalapeño, cilantro, avocado and a few sauces served up with chips or eat it by yourself. This dish screams Hawaiian food, and whether I were to be in Honolulu or hiking a waterfall in Kauai; I bet I could find it! Aloha!
