Salmon Rice Bowl with Avocado Mango Salad

My brother made pineapple rice bowls for my family last year on vacation and I have been waiting for an excuse to try it out. The pineapple is optional in this recipe but it completely elevates the dish. Not only is it super festive but it adds another element to the flavor. Let’s talk about this vibrant bright salad. The mango, avocado, and jalapeno are the stars of the dish. Each bite has the perfect balance of tangy, creamy, and spice.
