Red Kale, Mango & Cashew Salad: Picnic Ready

I have been trying really hard to stop wasting produce lately. It's been a hit and miss if I'm to be completely honest with you.

Last week I created a Red Kale, Mango & Cashew Salad mainly to make sure I don't let the red kale to completely wilt in my refrigerator.

How did the other ingredients get into this salad? Well, first, you know I love mangoes and adding a bit of sweetness to my salads.

But did you know that mangoes and cashews are related? Well, now you do! The salted toasted cashews add a bit of crunch and texture to the salad as do the red peppers. The mild mozzarella balls are a bit of a splurge, but worth it.

This salad is great on its own and is perfect for summer picnics. You can add protein such as grilled chicken or roasted lamb on top.
