The creamy avocado, sweet mango, and bright citrus in this salad make a refreshing counterpoint to Senegal's rich and savory stews.

Serves 4-6
Ingredients
1/2 cup finely chopped parsley
1/4 cup peanut or canola oil
1/4 cup fresh lime juice
2 tbsp. fresh orange juice

1 small navel orange, peeled and cut into segments
2 tsp. unsweetened shredded coconut (optional)
Instructions
