A foolproof salad

This salad is for the moms out there who are fretting because their kids refuse to eat their greens. It is also for the men out there who think that salads are for rabbits, and for the busy executive who thinks making a salad is as harrowing as public speaking.

Here is a salad that is so easy to whip up that it makes a grown man cry. And it is so delicious that you can eat it everyday, especially if you're on a diet like me.

Presenting... the mango & tomato salad!

What you need - a handful of cherry tomatoes, one ripe mango and a small onion.
Cut the tomatoes into smaller pieces, peel and cut mango and onion into small chunks.
In a bowl, mix 2 tablespoons of olive oil, pinch of salt and 1 tablespoon of lemon juice (or lime juice or balsamic vinegar). Toss the cut fruit/vegetables into the bowl and give a good stir. Garnish with black pepper, fresh chilli and coriander leaves.

It's best to leave the salad in the fridge for about 15 minutes for the flavours to meld together before serving.
