Spring is the time our bodies naturally want foods that are light and fresh.  As the temperature warms, our bodies desire cool, refreshing foods to keep us balanced.  Here in Texas, it gets hot quickly, and this salad offers a deliciously light addition to your meal.  I like to serve mine with the Chipotle Lime Salmon from an earlier post.

Pineapple Mango Salad

  • 1/2 cup diced pineapple
  • 1/2 cup diced purple onion
  • 1/2 of a red bell pepper, diced
