Tips for serving

·         Eat salad as a side dish OR add cooked chicken breast strips on top to make a meal.  

·         Add different vegetables to your salad for more color (i.e. tomatoes, bell peppers).

·         Make your salad with other leafy greens such as spinach, kale, and red or green leaf lettuce. All of these greens, including romaine lettuce, have more nutrients than iceberg lettuce.

·         For over ripe mangoes, add them to a smoothie mixed with lowfat yogurt and milk.
