Diabetic Recipe – Mango Salad with Balsamic Vinaigrette Dressing

This simple diabetic recipe is perfect for a quick lunch or a diet dinner. One tip for a better presentation of this dish is that you shouldn't put the balsamic vinaigrette on the salad long before serving. This dressing has a dark brown color, which could alter the look of the vegetables a little bit if allowed to sit in the salad bowl for too long.
