Sweet and Tangy with a hint of spice. This low-cal salad goes well with summer foods or makes a light meal when you're dieting.
In a large bowl, mix vegetable ingredients together. Drizzle the mint sauce over the salad while tossing lightly. Shake a bit of red pepper over the salad and toss once more.
Serve piled up. Garnish with croutons, garlic sesame sticks, or some baked Cheese Nips crackers, or maybe some Goldfish crackers. You'll have to count the calories of the garnish separately. Check the package of whatever you pick.
This recipe is easly adaptable to use other fruits or greens. Try some mango slices and strawberries or mango and avocado. Both of these combinations are enhanced by the delecate flavor of the mint.
