Summer Salad w Mango & Crispy Sprouted Quinoa Croutons

This salad is the best way to celebrate the beginning of summer in Australia ! (YAY) Nothing better no a hot summers day or night to pair a fresh salad with some barbecued sausages. This salad is super quick to put together and has fresh mango, a great way to incorporate seasonal ingredients into your diet. Topped with some pan fried spring whole foods sprouted quinoa and zucchini bread, these crispy croutons will put your processed bread croutons to serious shame (nutritionally AND taste wise). Top with extra salt, lemon and crispy slivered almonds and you will be invited to every summer BBQ šŸ˜‰
