An array of lush produce is grown in Israel throughout the summer months. Mango orchards produce a whopping harvest of 50,000 tons, of which 60% is sold in local markets and 40% exported around the world. Orchards are primarily located in the Galilee area, but grow as far south as the western Negev.

Avocado orchards can be seen from the northern border of Israel all the way south to Beersheva. The avocado industry in Israel produces six varieties that total around 100,000 tons, of which 70% is earmarked for export.

Delicious fruit and vegetables are always key ingredients for the best salads. This recipe takes advantage of mangoes and avocados in season. Red chili spices it up just enough to give it a little zip. The smoked salmon adds protein and flavor to complement the other ingredients.

The recipe is designed for four individual salads pressed in a cylinder mold. However, it can also be prepared in one large glass salad bowl or served on a bed of salad greens. The presentation is as good as the taste!
