Mango-cado Sandwich

by Meghann on March 23, 2012

I have another mango recipe for you. 😉

This one was inspired by the various mango and avocado salsa recipes referenced in the comments of this post. Only instead of a salsa, it’s in sandwich form.   

Introducing…. The Mango-cado Sandwich


Make this. Now. Trust me. It was so good that I didn’t want the sandwich to ever be over.

It was easy too. Just fresh mango, avocado, sharp cheddar cheese, and turkey.


Placed on the George Foreman and grill panini style for a good 5 minutes (gotta make sure that cheese is nice and melted!).


No condiments were needed – the mango and the avocado sort of squished into each other and created a silky, creamy layer of yumminess. The savory sharp cheese and smoky turkey only enhanced the sweetness of the mango and the avocado pulled it all together. Delicious.


My mango-cado sandwich was served with fresh snap peas and blue corn chips with salsa.


An amazing Friday lunch. :)

Question: What do you prefer – panini style sandwich or regular?

that looks amazing! I can’t remember the last time I had a panini! I like the melted aspect of a panini, but I also like regular because I can pull them apart and eat separate bits… they both have good attributes! haha

Panini-fied for sure! I like sandwiches, but toasting them takes them to an entiiiiiirely different level! :) Sorry, I get a little excited about this sort of stuff!

umm, yeah that would be the best sandwich ever! I just saw that there is a case of mangos for $7 at my local grocery store and very tempted to buy them. Panini style all the way!

I LOVe paninis!! We have a panini maker and we use it quuuiiittteee often 😉 I don’t like avocado, but I do like the idea of mango and cheese and turkey. YUMM!


14 Justine Duppong @ Life With Cheeseburgers March 23, 2012 at 3:22 pm

Definitely a nice change from the usual grilled cheese I go for! Although I’m thinking I may have to go meatless–with extra cheese–if I make this today (Lent)…

Pressed sandwiches have been a hit in our house lately- especially cheese + hummus… Super creamy and dreamy 😛

I am so jealous of your mango concoctions…it was one of my favorite fruits, until I developed this bizarre allergy to it. Enjoy lots of it for me! I’m living vicariously through the pictures you post :)
