Tangy, crunchy and sweet, this zippy Ginger Mango Cashew Salad recipe will cure any salad boredom. It's MANGOnificent! Looking for some inspiration to eat more vegetables? Let this deliciously, refreshing, flavour-packed Ginger Mango Cashew Salad renew your cravings for vegetables. 

 

Making Salad is Hard

Truly, it’s much easier to enjoy making salad if you aren’t worried about what shape the vegetables are chopped into. That’s SHALLOT of work! Live wild and dangerous. You’ll eat more salad this way; chop up the vegetables into any random shapes, toss them into a bowl, and pour on a salad dressing that is so delicious you want to lick the bottom of the bowl when the salad is gone. Never suffer from salad boredom again!

 

Where to find the best healthy salad dressings?

I’ve got you covered! These are my best 3 healthy salad dressings you’ll find on repeat at my house. Loved by the big and little kids alike, these dressings are quick to make, last a few days in the fridge, and taste better than any store-bought salad dressing I’ve ever tried.

 

 

Can you eat salad dressing and lose weight?

Are you trying to lose weight? Here's a great place to start - how to stop dieting. Want a sneak peak? It starts with tossing your scale out the window, and start tossing your salad! To clarify, add a good dressing to your salad and you'll be craving them all day long. To toss a salad, simply sprinkle on a few tablespoons of homemade salad dressing, then take tongs or two large spoons and toss it all together. This way every single bite is ridiculously delicious, and perfectly kissed with a little dressing. For best results in reaching your weight loss goal, be sure to only use a small amount of salad dressing; try not to pour so much that the lettuce is dripping.

 

Ginger Mango Cashew Salad

The Solution to Salad Boredom is here!

This is one of my all-time favourite salads as it contains a variety of crunchy vegetables, with a tangy hint of green onion, and the soft, sweetness of mango. Plus, add in cashews and it delivers a buttery component to create a total taste explosion in your mouth. You can increase the protein power of this salad by adding some crispy tofu chunks (made by oven roasting tofu cubes for a few minutes). For any non-vegan folks, try topping with some left over white fish or chicken from your fridge.
