There are days… You know the ones, where you look in the fridge and announce to the world that there simply isn’t enough fruit or greens to create a salad. This was me. I was trying to be good by eating a no grain breakfast, and I was craving some fruit, but everything looked high maintenance to me. And then… I looked at the bagels. NO! I was trying to be good, so I didn’t toast some delightful bagels up that day.
Did I mention I love bagels? Back to fruit.
I won’t kid you, this salad is TOTALLY high maintenance if you are looking for a quick tossup. This requires mangos and cherries. Such a pleasure to cut these fruits, yes? No. BUT… completely worth the time. Trust me, your taste buds will thank you for the blessed change.
What I also enjoy about this salad, is that it could be tossed on top of some lovely greens if you want a light meal, or if you were like me, put a side of pork tenderloin (leftovers) and make up some guacamole for a beautiful and healthy breakfast. It is such a bundle of flavor, perfectly balanced with floral notes and sweetness. What is not to love?
So, enjoy this overly easy recipe!
- 2-3 mangos
- fresh cherries (pitted)
Toss together in a bowl, maybe add with a homemade dressing of honey and some balsamic! YUM!!!
