Zesty Mango Salad

This is one of my favorite salads.  For one, I absolutely adore mangoes.  I can easily eat a mono meal of just mangoes especially when they are ripe, in season and dripping with sweet juice.  I particularly love this salad though, because it is so zesty and full of flavor that there is absolutely no need for salt or oil.  It’s delightful all on its own.

 

Mangoes

 

My favorite meals are the simplest ones.  That is why I love the raw food diet.  It usually only takes a handful of ingredients, no super long shopping list to take with you grocery shopping just to make a dish.  I want to be able to make my meals with less than ten ingredients (ideally five or less) and in ten minutes or less.  I have never been a girl who loves being in the kitchen let alone cleaning up a  big mess afterward.   So, when I first found out about raw foods I  just knew it was for me.

 

Mango Salad

This mango salad awakens all your taste-buds from the sweet mango, to the tart cranberries, to the lip puckering lime.  The addition of the crisp, fresh bell pepper to add that little crunch and of course cilantro.  I am a huge lover of cilantro.  It seems that people either love it or hate it, but I LOVE LOVE cilantro it just finishes this salad off nicely.

    FANTASTIC recipe!! Mangos are my favorite fruit and this salad is so amazing! It is bursting with flavors from the sweet and juicy mango and cilantro and lime! I put this over a baby spinach or romaine salad and it really flavored it up!
