Here I am going to share this healthy recipe of Ripe Mango and Plum Salad. Trust me, this is absolutely fuss-free and you can make it in no-time. And Taste is amazing!
I grew up in a small town in Odisha. The periphery of my house was dotted with two small mango trees. I had seen how beautifully the flowers bloom on the trees hiding all the leaves behind. Then a few Summer storms destroyed a part of it. But finally, when the tiny green mangoes appeared, I started counting the numbers. It was so fun and one of the things I enjoyed doing in my Summer Holidays.
Me and my sister used to be super delighted with the sight, when the trees would relieve themselves with fresh ripe mangoes. And the taste of those mangoes was truly delicious. A kind of ceremony when all those being plucked at the end 🙂
This Ripe Mango and Plum Salad come with the goodness of coconut oil.
I have used here cold-pressed coconut oil dressing. You will definitely gonna love even if you are trying it for the first time. Coconut oil which is as healthy as Olive oil is high in natural saturated fats. It helps in lowering the risk of heart diseases. Coconut oil is also a stable oil that doesn’t break down easily at high temperatures.
Mango is Rich in Vitamins and Minerals. They are loaded with antioxidants and vitamin A.Again the juicy plum is loaded with dietary fiber, and vitamins A, C, and K. Plums also contain vitamin B6, which reduces the possibility of a heart attack. It improves blood circulation and removes toxins from the body.
I have added a handful of sunflower seeds to my salad. This is a great source of Vitamin C.Tryptophan, in sunflower seeds, helps to regulate appetite. It helps in weight loss.
