Now, there are some holidays behind us, but still some ahead, so let’s cook some more :)
I’ve said numerous times that the master chef in the family is my mom and I’ll stick to that no matter what… It’s just that for the last 2 years she was a little bit confused when I was going for a visit and never knew what to prepare. We even got to a point where she called to ask for me to go and prepare the meals, something unheard of 3 years ago. But, I have to admit, she is catching up fast and I love her for that!

For our last visit on Christmas eve, she had made a raw appetizer to die for. It was delicious, mouthwatering, raw, vegan and everybody enjoyed it, well, may be me the most of all, but if you are still wondering what to include in your festive menu for New Year’s eve, try this one, you won’t regret it! :)

It’s raw mango salsa with avocado and little pieces of red onion, absolutely gorgeous and unexpected. A decadent appetizer that will impress any gourmet guest you might have…

  1. It’s awesome she’s catching up with you! I really wish my family would too, but I have gotten them to like quinoa :D At least that’s a start. The mango salsa sounds amazing! All the different flavors must be heavenly when put together!

  2. Thanks Amber :)
    The bowls and spoons are vintage russian, I got them from my mom, and the tray is actually an ordinary photo frame :)))

  3. Yum!!!! Mangos are in season here in Australia at the moment, and are so juicy and delicious, and I would imagine would be fantastic in this. So sweet of your Mum to come up with this for you.

    I love the photos of this too, and that silver tray you’ve presented it on is stunning!!!

    Best wishes for the New Year, my dear friend. I always love reading your posts and looking at your beautiful photos.
