#RECIPEFRIDAY: Sweet, Refreshing and (slightly) Spicy Summer Salad...

You know...

I couldn't wait to share this recipe with you today.


I made it last week and...

I'm seriously addicted to this new combination of flavours that have entered my world!

Not only me...

But Mr. FUntastic and SuperFit too!


I have to admit...

It's a recipe that was inspired by a cooking show I saw on TV (in passing! lol) and...

I tried to re-create it based on my memory! (If it serves me well! lol)


Honestly...

It's so refreshing in taste that...

It will leave you wanting more as soon as it's gone! (My brother loved it so much that he immediately asked me for the recipe...which I had winged but turned out to be quite tasty! #WIN)

Have it as a side or, put your chicken (or protein of choice) right in it!
Chicken Pesto recipe can be found here.

Ever since I tried, tested, and loved...

I've been savouring it ever since!

I've also been adding guacamole for some added flavaaaah!

So I guess I should stop talking about it and...

Just share the recipe with you already!

      1. The mango is a key flavour in all of this. So flavourful, and juicy! Char Crust is a seasoning blend. Check it out!

    9. Weekend plans always include running... aiming for 20 miles. Thankfully, I have friends that will run this with me. It's a distance I don't think I could motivate myself to run solo right now.

      I had a mango smoothie yesterday post-run. SO FRIGGIN GOOD.
