Chickpeas and Raw Mango Salad

7th out of the 50 Shades of Summer

This gorgeous salad was my lunch for today. I had some boiled chickpeas and mum made raw mango salad to carry to office today so, I decided to carry some of that as well.

We had two separate ingredients and didn’t know how to combine it into something we wanted to have for lunch. We thought we’d just go with it and add it all into a salad. This gorgeous salad is a result of an experiment that turned out to be even better than we expected.

The salad is a beautiful blend of different flavors that compliment each other oh so well!
