This salsa is great for the summer months ahead! It is light, refreshing, and can be enjoyed for lunch or dinner. The benefits of the ingredients used will provide you with immune-boosting support and lasting energy. Did you know that mango is more effective in reducing body fat and blood glucose levels than certain drugs aimed at producing similar effects? It has also been found that avocado contains compounds that inhibit and destroy oral cancer cells!
Tomatoes also help make your skin look great. The beta-carotene found in tomatoes (as well as carrots and sweet potatoes) helps protect the skin against sun damage, as well as the lycopene which makes the skin less sensitive to UV light damage (a leading cause of fine lines and wrinkles). Thus, this recipe is truly suited for the summer months!
It is interesting to note, too, that cilantro is great for removing heavy metals in the body, and garlic has the ability to enhance the body's immune cell activity. Dulse is also incredibly high in vitamins and minerals and helps heal poor digestive systems. In addition, it cleanses the body of heavy metals and increases metabolism to help aid in weight loss! See the recipe below to start reaping in these amazing benefits!
- 2 mango of any variety, chopped into small cubes
- 1 avocado, chopped into cubes
- 2 tomatoes, diced finely
- 1/2 cup cucumber, chopped into small cubes
- 1/4 red onion, diced finely
- 1/4 cup cilantro, chopped finely
- 1 clove garlic, crushed
- Juice of 1 lime
- 1-2 tbsp. dulse (this is a sea vegetable and can be found in health food stores or asian markets)
Add these ingredients into a large bowl. You may add some himalayan sea salt if you please (I do not consume salt, so I do not add this) and some cracked black pepper. Let this mixture sit for a little to let the flavours blend (you may let it sit in the fridge over the day, or on the counter for an hour or so). You can eat it as it, or you can use zucchini slices and other vegetables to use as "chips" to dip into the salsa.
