Mango-Avocado Salad

This salad is super easy to make and easy to eat. While I can't imagine eating a whole one nowadays for lunch, given my much-lighter exercise regime, it's a perfect thing to have when you're craving something tropical in a far-from-tropical locale.

Don't like almonds or blue cheese? Try using macadamia nuts, toasted walnuts, or even pistachios or peanuts. Substitute blue for Manchego - or go without it and add a garnish of poached or barbecue chicken.

1 mango, peeled and sliced
1 avocado, peeled and sliced
1 handful baby spinach
Dressing, to taste
Handful of almonds, for garnish
Handful of blue cheese, for garnish
