Mango & Avocado Pasta Salad Recipe

My family loves pasta salad, and they prefer that it is made at home. I created this pasta salad recipe after receiving a delicious bottle of Pylian Estates olive oil through Fitfluential. This recipe has a variety of fruits and vegetables, with the addition of fresh herbs and mild mozzarella that allows the flavor of the cold pressed olive oil to shine through. I took this dish to one of our Thanksgiving dinners and I had several family members ask for the recipe.

Pylian Estates olive oil is a cold pressed imported olive oil; the olives are grown, processed, and barreled in Pylos, Greece. They exclusively use koroneiki olives which are cold processed with no added chemicals. This allows the oil to preserve all of the beneficial antioxidants, polyphenols, and micronutrients. The bottle is labeled with the harvest and preservation date so you know exactly when your olive oil was made.
