Mangoes add a whole new flavour dimension to a simple salad. Who said salads should be boring! It’s easy to make with fresh ingredients and a few seeds. Feel free to make substitutions so use this recipe as a base to create your own variations. I like to add freshly ground black pepper for a spicy complicated flavour.

Mangoes are packed with flavour and loaded with nutrients. 1 cup =100 calories, 100% daily Vitamin  C, 35% daily Vitamin A and 12% daily fibre. Bean Sprouts are filled with fibre, virtually fat free and high in Vitamin C.
