Before we dive into the specs of this beautiful salad, I have an announcement!
If you haven’t seen it yet, I’m teaching a workshop in August! If you live near the San Diego area, come join me at Grotto Climbing Gym for a night of yummy, nutrient rich food talk! There will be plenty of knowledge and food to share 🙂
This salad kind of reminds me of those sweet and spicy fruit salads you can get from Mexican street vendors. If you already didn’t know, mango with chili powder is just a really good idea. Another good idea is pairing this salad with a really fresh and citrus-y ceviche topped with loads of avocado!
An alternative preparation would be to diced up the fruit and veggies really small and make a simple salsa. Spoon on fish tacos or dip with some blue corn (non-GMO) chips or some thin slices of jicama!
