My Favorite Salad (Right Now) Mango Kiwi Salad


Spinach, or romaine lettuce, or a mix of your favorite greens.
2-3 mangos peeled and diced
3-4 kiwis peeled and diced
1/4 c dried Cranberries
1/2 c chopped almonds

Place clean greens in a large bowl Pile remaining ingredients on the top and drizzle with dressing.
Serve and enjoy.

To make chopping the mango easier, if you are like me and terrible at it, peel them first. Then set them on your cutting board and cut down lengthwise about 1/3 in from the side.  Continue to make small slice in from the side to get as close to the seeds as possible.  Then flip and repeat for the remaining 3 sides.  The pieces that have been cut off are then easy to slice cleanly.  I then scarp all that I can from the seed/pit with my teeth and throw it in the compost heap.
