Mango Salad – It’s mid-July already and monsoon is expected soon. Thank God! I can’t really take any more of this unbearable heat. But with this thought came the realization that there will be no mangoes in the market soon. We can’t bear the thought of living without them.
Ok, so I tried this Mango salad/salsa I have been thinking of trying for quite some time. The recipe is really simple.
What goes well with mango in Mango Salsa
Just add Mango with choice of your fruits (pineapple, peach, Litchi, watermelon, etc. just try to add juicy fruits), some cucumber and tomato, add salad dressing, and you are done.
Although this method did not really work for me. The salad was so delicious that by the time Axat came home from the office there was not anything left for him. My kids had already finished it.
You can serve this Mango salad as it is when kids are hungry or you can serve them with nachos, roasted papad, or on crackers as canapés (Like I have used pineapple salsa for canapés).
What are the benefits of Mango
Mango is not only tasty but packed with nutrition. It is rich in Vitamin C. Dietary Fibres help in Digestion. Mangoes boost immunity and its high water content keeps us hydrated in Summers.
