If you don't know already, I am a big mango fan! Aside from it being a deliciously sweet fruit, I love how mango pairs in savory dishes - especially with something acidic (think vinegary). One of my all time favourite recipes is this Quick and Easy Pickled Mango that tastes great in literally everything!
I've paired this mango salad with a quick apple cider vinegar dressing that takes minutes to whip together and is the perfect complement to the sweetness of the mango.
Makes: 4 - 6 servings
1/4 cup parsley, finely chopped

2 cups kale, chopped
1 cup cabbage, chopped
In a small bowl, whisk together olive oil, apple cider vinegar, and black pepper, set aside.

That doesn't necessarily mean you should pick up any salad dressing while you are at the grocery store. While salad dressings may be disguised as a healthy condiment, they can quickly rack up on calories, fat, and sugar. Not to mention, a long list of ingredients you can't pronounce.

Now you might be thinking, hey! I'll just pick up a low-fat or fat free salad dressing to avoid the extra calories and fat. Here's my dietitian tip for you: when an item is labelled as "fat-free" or "low fat", the fat is usually replaced with something else so th...
