Orange Mango Salad

I really enjoyed this salad of sweet oranges, mango slices, iceberg lettuce, and added crunch of carrots and cereals. This whole combination goes really well, and tasted refreshing. I find myself like anything crunchy, so whenever I have cereals, I would add to salads to give it the extra crisp and crunch.

I suppose mandarin oranges with toasted walnuts or perhaps bigger seeds like sunflower seeds would be a good variation too! I added about 1/2 tbsp of balsamic dressing (A new dressing I grabbed from the supermarket shelf, which I don't think is balsamic vinegar which usually cost much more expensive :P) and 1 tsp of wholegrain mustard (A new dressing added into my pantry too). I'm trying to experiment with dressings and condiments to expand my knowledge to creating simple meals for a start. :)

I have no detailed recipe here as the proportion is based on my individual serving. You may try other salad leaves as well but I prefer iceberg (though nutritional content is not that high) for its sweet and more crispy texture. Best serve as a side for a refreshing treat. :)
