Mango Summer Salad



It's that time of year... summer! On Monday, we spent all day at the beach with friends, then hosted a BBQ in the late afternoon. It was the perfect way to kick off summer and ever since, I've been relishing in the simple, yet delicious meals that seem to make their way into my tummy this time of year. After debating what to make for dinner last night, I realized that I had all the fixins' for a delicious mango salad and this meal was born.
