One of the things I love about summer is all the abundant fruit the season offers us. It’s hard to say which ones are my favorite these days but mangos are high up on that list, I can’t seem to get enough of them. We are buying them by the cases these days and putting them into our smoothies, ice creams, and this amazing summer sprouts salad.
Sprouts are another favorite of mine during the summer as they offer a high concentration of nutrients, and water content (which helps me stay hydrated) and they taste good with just about anything (especially avocado). I have good news! This recipe has all three, avocado, mango, and sprouts. How great is that?!
This mango sprouts summer salad is easy to make, all you need is a handful of sprouts and top it with my favorite easy mango salsa recipe and it’s that easy. I sometimes add extra avocado and mix it all up to make it rich and creamy.

Sprouts contain a significant amount of protein and dietary fiber, as well as vitamin K, folate, niacin, thiamin, vitamin C, vitamin A, and riboflavin. In terms of minerals, sprouts contain manganese, copper, zinc, magnesium, iron, and calcium. They have a high number of enzymes which is an important part of the digestive process, helping to break down food while increasing the absorption of nutrients by the digestive tract. Sprouts also contain a significant amount of protein making them a great protein source for vegetarians and vegans. Low in calories, sprouts are great for weight loss. Since they are also high in Vitamin A, which has a number of antioxidant properties, this makes them a great immune booster. Vitamin A is also great for improving vision and can help to prevent glaucoma, cataracts, and macular degeneration. Some of the health benefits include preventing anemia, lowering cholesterol, reducing blood pressure, preventing neural tube defects in infants, protecting against cancer, boosting skin health, improving vision, supporting the immune system, and increasing usable energy reserves.
