Clothes Make the Girl Inspired Tropical Chopped Salad
The original recipe is here- which I highly suggest you try too!
Tropical Chopped Salad
1 red pepper, chopped
1 orange/yellow pepper, chopped
1/2 english cucumber, chopped
1 avo, chopped/diced/sliced
2 small mexican/honey mangos, sliced, or 1 regular mango
8 ounces cooked shrimp, chopped
juice of one lime
your fave lettuce
salt to taste
chili powder, to taste
Throw all your chopped stuff in a big bowl. Add your lime juice, and a liberal sprinkle of salt and chili powder. Toss well- the avocado and lime juice will make a sauce/dressing. Let sit for at least 5-10 minutes, then adjust seasoning accordingly. This salad is crazy good. Makes 4 servings if a side, or 2-3 large servings as a main. Mel's version calls for red onion and cumin, which I'm sure would be great, but no way would S eat it with onion. Great summer salad!
