It's simple and exquisite - the flavours of avocado and mango work so well.

Dry roast the pinenuts in a small frying pan with no oil.
Combine the olive oil, lemon and mustard in a small jar. Slice the mango and avocado and arrange on small entree plates.
Note: As pinenuts are high in polyunsaturated fats they can turn rancid easily. Buy small packs and use them quickly. Store them in a sealed packet in the refrigerator.
