A bag of spring mix salad greens, chopped ripe mangoes and crunchy bits of oriental noodles ( I just used a spicy oriental snack brand ) make up this light and simple green salad with an Asian flair. I’ve always been a fan of these bags of assorted salad greens. They make salad making so much fun, convenient and they’re definitely a better buy. Just imagine if I get each salad green variety separately, I would surely end up with a cartload and most likely, with so much waste! So I’m glad that someone thought about this practical idea. I find meal preparations and cooking very convenient here, although convenience sometimes comes with a price, aside from the fact that there are just some ingredients and preservatives that, sad to say, are just not good for us. But there are still so many food products of excellent quality and outstanding ideas available which make life in the kitchen so much easier. Oriental-flavored vinaigrette or a creamy honey mustard both work well for the dressing.
