Lana Del Ray coyly sang “I’ve got that summertime, summertime sadness” but there’s no sadness in our household, when it’s Mango season. The Mango is such a transient fruit appearing in desserts, drinks, hot and cold meals and salads.

This Mango & Asparagus salad is so easy to throw together, it’s delicious, quick and easy and very healthy and low in fat. I’ve also been known to use the same ingredients and stir through my special salsa sauce to create a mango salsa!

Mango, Tomato, Asparagus, Avocado and Rocket combine to make this superbly quick, easy and healthy Salad.
