Super Green Salad with Mango Salsa

 I've been eating a lot of greens lately. I mean, I always eat a lot of greens. In our house we go through multiple bunches of kale on a regular basis. But recently, I've been increasing my greens consumption even more. And it feels so good! They truly are a gift from nature, full of chlorophyll, antioxidants, vitamins, and minerals. Everyone could use more greens in their diet. The world would be a much healthier place if they did.
 I threw this colorful salad together after another trip to the farmers market. I bought some gorgeous kale, mixed salad greens, and pea shoots. I put them all of  in a bowl and added some broccoli sprouts and broccoli and topped the whole green monster salad with a homemade mango salsa. This salad is sure to give you a nice dose of antioxidants from all of the colorful produce. It will also brighten up these dark cold winter days we're having with a nice tropical touch. Feel free to double or even triple the mango salsa recipe below and use it throughout the week.

Super Green Salad with Mango Salsa (serves 1 as a main, 2 as a side)


For the salad:
2 large handfuls mixed greens
1 handful chopped kale
1 small head of broccoli, cut into florets
1 handful of sprouts of your choice (broccoli, pea, alfalfa, etc.)

For the salsa:
1 large mango, peeled and cut into cubes
1 small tomato, diced
1 avocado, diced
1 quarter of a red onion, finely diced
juice of one lime
2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
pinch of sea salt

Combine the salad ingredients into you largest bowl. Set aside. In a smaller bowl combine the salsa ingredients and toss together. Finally, top the greens with the mango salsa and toss well. So easy and so delicious!

  1. I believe that salsa can be raw or cooked, chopped finely or chunky, blended smooth, mild or fiery hot, smooth or spicy or fruity.
