Quinoa Mango Salsa Super Salad

Featured Video
One thing that's really annoying is when I order a salad, and I get like two leaves of iceberg lettuce topped with a slice of tomato. Pathetic! To actually be happy and content with my meals I decided I had to introduce my Quinoa Mango Salsa SUPER Salad, to the local Mexican place over here. It's jam-packed with tonnes of goodies! First of all it's not just Iceberg lettuce, which can get a bit boring, but the base of the salad consists of spinach, cabbage, iceberg lettuce, carrots and malunggay. Malunggay, also called moringa, is the local super food here and has lots of calcium, potassium and vitamin C. On top of that goes the quinoa and kidney beans for fiber and protein to really fill you up. The icing on the cake is a mango adding a sweet twist and salsa for a bit of spice. Now didn't I say it was a Super Salad?

1 head of Iceberg lettuce, chopped in medium size chunks

1 head of cabbage, chopped in medium size chunks
