Notes

MAKE IT AHEAD: I actually encourage you to make this mango salad ahead of time. Not only for a less stressful dinner, but because the longer it sits, the more the flavors marry together.
*FOR MORE FLAVOR: Pair this awesome recipe with something hot and spicy!
**FOR HEARTIER MEAL: Add black beans and chickpeas to the salad.
***FRIDGE IT!: it’s sooooo tasty when it’s super cold- amazingly refreshing for these hot summer days.

*****SERVING:This recipe yields 5 grams of protein for each serving.
