One great thing about living in Puerto Vallarta is the access to wonderful organic fresh fruits and vegetables all year round. Here is a easy salad using ingredients that are plentiful (and cheap) here in Puerto Vallarta.

This is a really fun and delicious recipe for those days when you are super busy and want a healthy raw meal in 15 minutes or less. If you’re really hungry, eat the whole salad to yourself, or you can share it between 2 people.

It’s easier than you might think to meet all of your nutritional needs with fresh fruits, vegetables and small amounts of nuts and seeds. Just in this salad alone, you get 24.8 grams of protein! The coolest part is after a big meal like this you feel energized, clear headed and ready to take on your next task.
