Strawberry-Mango salad


Here is one more recipe which will definately refresh you in this heat of summer. Presenting Strawberry-Mango salad............

Strawberry is the most popular berry fruit in the world.It is a rich source of vitamin C. They are also high in fiber, folate, potassium and antioxidants.Its juiciness and the deep red color improves the taste and appearance of the recipe. Mango,the king of all fruits is loved by one and all.Besides being delicious,it is rich in vitamins, minerals and anti-oxidants and it also contains an enzyme with stomach soothing properties.

When I first heard about this salad,I was very doubtful about it,many questions popped into my mind.But I wanted to try it as I like experimenting with food and I have never had any recipe like this before. So I searched the recipe for strawberry mango salad in the web,there were so many different recipes.I took some ideas from those recipes and finally personalized this recipe according to my taste.I was eagerly waiting to taste the salad so that I could clear my doubts and believe me it was so yummy.......so tasty.......so refreshing. Just thought to share it with you all.

I, myself am not a big fan of mangoes,but if it is served like this who wouldn't love to eat it!!!!!!! So what are you waiting for......try this thoda sweet,thoda spicy and thoda tangy (sour) salad at home.

Hi,

This looks beautiful. About your query on my blog, the MBP is an event where you must post the recipe from another blogger. Posting your own defeats the purpose of the event. Thanks

I have just bookmarked this recipe to try soon. Our strawberries should be ready to pick here in upstate New York next month, although we do have to import our mangoes!
