Beetroot- Mango-Mint Salad

Hey there :)

So, how was your summer so far? Here in Germany it was so lala. We had some warm and sunny days, but overall it did not feel like a real summer. Except for all those mosquitos hanging around. Meh. But I still find it hard to accept that the days are getting shorter and I had only one day out at a lake. That doesn’t seem right to me… Anyway.. can’t be changed I guess…

Well, apart from that I at least had some summer-y food. Light and easily whipped up stuff. Like this salad. It again has some beets in it, giving it a vibrant color. The earthy tone of the beets pair quite well with the tropical mango and on top of that it looks colorful ;) The avocado adds a bit of creaminess and Vitamin E which is good for your skin and the mint brings in some freshness. All in all I think it is a nice summer-y salad, due to the mango a bit on the sweet side of course. As a light snack it is optimal though. and tossed together in a hinch :)
