Zesty Mango Salad

zesty mango salad

Mangoes add a whole new flavour dimension to a simple salad. Who said salads should be boring. It’s easy to make with fresh ingredients and a few seeds. Feel free to make substitutions. Use recipe as a base to create your own variations.

We love to use Mango in smoothies or as a sweet sauce over some dairy free ice-cream. Mango is a wonderful addition to spices, and you can intensify the flavour by adding some freshly ground black pepper whilst in salads.

Notes: Mangoes are packed with flavour and loaded with nutrients. 1 cup =100 calories, 100% daily Vitamin  C, 35% daily Vitamin A and 12% daily fibre.

Bean Sprouts are filled with fibre, virtually fat free and high in Vitamin C.

Freshly ground black pepper adds spicy complicated flavour.
