  • Prep avocado and mango. Slice the mango and avocado into thin slices, about ¼ inch. Here's How to Cut a Mango and here's How to Cut an Avocado.
  • Assemble. Spread about ½ teaspoon of the pesto on two serving plates. Then alternating the mango and avocado, layer the slices between the two plates, spreading about ½ teaspoon of the pesto on every slice except the top.
  • Garnish and serve. Garnish with a sprig of fresh basil or lemon verbena. Serve!
