Tropical Tango Summer Salad



For the most part of my life, I have been in a constant conflict with the weighing scale. And also for the most part of my adult life, I have seriously hated salads.


Like how can you gather your greens, chop up the veggies, and toss in the most ambitious of dressings, hoping that each bite will magically melt away the pounds? It's a heroic attempt to resist the seductive calls of pizza, burgers, and all things deep-fried.


But things did come down to shove. My body started telling me "Stop the junk!" and I started looking for healthy snacking options....tried out a few salad recipes at home. In the beginning. it was difficult, replacing the "deep fried" crunch with the "fresh and green" crunch, but gradually with the right recipes, salads became a go-to snacking option.


The best part is, I have found out a few easy recipes which doesn't take a lot of time to prepare, and are perfect to keep myself full and yet satisfy my taste buds with a riot of flavors. The Tropical Tango Salad is one of them. Trust me this easy and joyful salad recipe has made my life so much easy. I just store the chopped veggies and fruits in the refrigerator so that I can easily prepare the salad whenever I feel like snacking.
