If you’re looking for a healthy compliment for your meals, you need to try quick pickled onions! You can put them together in just a few minutes; after an hour, you can use them over salads, meats, vegetables and fruits. I enjoy adding them to my lunch bowls and love the little zing of flavor!
The pickled onions pair beautifully with this avocado and mango salad. You cut the mango and avocado into bite-sized pieces, layer them with baby romaine, drizzle with jalapeño vinaigrette and top it all off with the pickled onions. The vinaigrette isn’t spicy, so it’s safe enough for kids.
Cinco de Mayo come this Friday, so why not serve this delicious salad with some flautas and my no-sugar added margaritas and finish it off with Tres Leches Cake for a fun and healthy celebratory meal!
