Fresh Corn and Mango Salad

Disclosure: I’m so happy to be able to give you all a peek into Pure Delicious by Heather Christo. Thanks for letting me share this beautiful cookbook with you!

I’m not usually someone who gets super excited about Holidays. But I’m feeling rather giddy over the upcoming Memorial Day weekend.

What are your plans? Are you grilling? Boating? Shopping? Tell me! I want to know!

Whatever you end up doing, make sure you set aside some time to whip up a batch of this Fresh Corn and Mango Salad. It’s going to be the absolute star of your Memorial Day weekend festivities. And here’s why: because this salad does it all. No joke.

Serve it with tortilla chips for snacking. Make it a potluck side dish. Or use it to top grilled chicken and fish. Seriously. You won’t run out of ways to use this flavorful, fully loaded, savory-sweet salad!

The recipe for this Fresh Corn and Mango Salad comes from Heather Christo’s new cookbook, Pure Delicious. Filled with over 150 recipes that are free from gluten, dairy, eggs, soy, peanuts, tree nuts, shellfish and cane sugar, Pure Delicious is a cookbook that anyone with food allergies or sensitivities needs to own. But beyond that, if you simply enjoy beautiful, fresh, tasty food, Pure Delicious is for you!

The inspiration behind Pure Delicious comes straight from Heather’s own family. After Heather and her two daughters were diagnosed with a sobering list of food allergies and intolerances, Heather made it her mission to create recipes that would heal and nourish them all. Heather talks about their journey, both pre- and post-diagnosis, and outlines exactly what they did to overcome all the challenges they faced along the way. It’s an inspiring story. One rooted deep in a Mother’s love for her daughters.

I’ve been a huge fan of Heather’s blog for many years now (umm…the women has some mad cocktail making skills!) and I’m so happy to have her beautiful cookbook on my shelf. Definitely pick up a copy for yourself. I know you’ll absolutely love it!
