One of my favorite all time salads. Could not be any easier to make than getting out of bed and putting on a pair of pants. Even if you think you can’t cook, you can “cook” this. You can make this.
My kiddos and husband love this salad. This is vegetarian, a good source of protein, and just wonderfully refreshing on a hot day.

You don’t have to give up flavor and taste to eat well. You just have to know the ingredients to put together. If you are having trouble coming up with things that will be tasty and healthy, a good rule of thumb is, if it grows together then it will probably taste great together.
From the Mediterranean area, lemons, olives, and fish are fantastic together. From South America region, mango, chilies, and poultry go great together. From South East Asia, coconut, green papaya, chilies, shrimp, are a staple combo. I think you can get the picture. I study food and where it comes from, and I love tasting new things.
This is an old dish. I did not invent it, but I certainly love it. I know those of you who follow my blog for recipes have been waiting… so here you go. Sorry for the wait. Been busy… =)
Thanks for reading and I hope you have a fantastic day!
