Chopped
Mango
Salad

Every summer, I like to stock up on a batch of mangoes that I enjoy using in different recipes like Mango Lassi and refreshing salads. Mangoes are a perfect ingredient that can add a splash of vibrant color along with some juiciness and nutrients like vitamin C and fiber in many recipes.  The natural sugars in mangoes also give a delightful touch of sweetness. 

This Chopped Mango Salad is the perfect way to enjoy different flavors, textures, colors and nutrients in one bowl. For this recipe, I created a fiber-filled base using leafy greens and colorful veggies like red bell peppers. I also included a serving of quinoa for some texture, added fiber and a protein boost. This salad is topped off with some nuts for a perfect crunch factor. Pairing mango with these ingredients calls for a perfect summer salad that can brighten and freshen up your day!
