In the thick of those dog days of heat sharing more salads and grilling recipes. Nothing makes your mind and body feel great like a fresh salad bursting with flavor. Nothing makes your body happier than fresh greens!
This beautiful Miami inspired tropical salad for a BBQ we looked into making a salad people would love. The salty cinnamon-lime dressing pairs perfectly with the mango and coconut. It is more on the sweet side than an everyday salad, but it definitely delivered on being a crowd pleaser. It would be a perfect addition to a potluck or for a summer BBQ.
