Salad is an excellent and refreshing meal, but bland salads can get boring. I tried my own rendition of a mango salsa salad to spice up my normal salad routine. This simple salad has a distinctive and lasting taste with a recipe that you can certainly make on your own. This recipe is very basic, simple, easy to prepare, inexpensive and will last for a few meals.
