Brandi's (and now Kelly) been working so hard to get super fit for this summer, so I wanted to make a recipe that would be filling, healthy, and delicious! This salad is so easy to make, too. Sweat every day, and refuel your body with fresh fruits and vegetables. You'll be happy, healthy, and ready for swim-suit season! 

/// Mucho Mango Salad ///

1 head bibb lettuce 
1 mango
1 garden tomato
1/2 avocado
1 handful cilantro
1 green onion

Bibb lettuce is a refreshing alternative to green romaine. The mango dressing makes this recipe filling, nutritious, and low fat. There's no need for oily dressings in our salads - that will just add unnecessary fat and weigh you down. This salad is a satisfying meal, great for replenishing after a hard workout, and totally healthy! 

Chop up the lettuce and place in a large bowl. In your Vitamix (or high speed blender), blend the mango and handful of cilantro leaves until smooth. Pour over the lettuce and stir well until all the lettuce is covered. Dice the tomato and avocado and place on top of the lettuce. Finally, finely chop the green onion/chive and sprinkle over the salad. Top with some fresh ground pepper.
