RECIPE - Summer Salsa Salad
One of the best things about summer is the abundance of fruit and how easy it is to incorporate more of them into our daily diets. Fruits are an excellent source of essential vitamins and minerals, and they are packed with fibre. Fruits boast high levels of antioxidants and flavonoids which can reduce a persons risk of heart disease, diabetes, inflammation and cancer.
This is one of my family’s favourite summer salads. It’s light and tangy and packed with flavour. It pairs well with fresh grilled fish, great on tacos, and is a crowd pleaser at any picnic or barbeque.
What you will need:
- 2 ripe Mangoes diced
- 2 ripe Tomatoes diced
- 2 ripe Avocadoes diced
- 1 small red Onion finely diced
- Half a bunch Coriander chopped
- Juice of a Lemon
What to do:
Gently mix all these ingredients together and drizzle with Lemon juice
For those that love a bit of spice, you could always add a finely chopped chilli.
You can adjust any ingredient you like according to personal taste, but I think this salad is perfect just the way it is!
