Hello my fellow foodies. I have exciting news... Mango's are in season! I was so pleased when my local grocer had organic mango's for $.99 a piece. Just like Kenny Chesney said: "Mango's and Marley, you know, fit me like a glove." Their sweet and tart flavor sends my taste buds into heaven.
Being on my healthy lifestyle quest, I wanted to combine my other favorite healthy food and make a salad. Folks, this is a seriously good salad. I am shocked because I just made it up. I was so glad that I wrote down what I did, because this will now be my new go to meal for lunch. I keep cooked quinoa in my fridge at all times, so this salad took me 10 minutes to make. So easy and trust me on the flavors. I knocked it out of the park. Enjoy!
