Salads are the perfect lunch, dinner, and surprisingly breakfast because they're healthy, light, nutrient-dense, and will make you feel fuller longer. When you pack the fiber on your plate or bowl, you'll feel satiated and won't reach for the snacks. In fact, this recipe calls for avocado, a superfood that makes you feel full for up to 6 hours, according to a study. For best results, nutritionists recommend eating avocado in the afternoon to eliminate your 3 pm cravings and stay full up until dinner time.

Serve this salad at your summer get-togethers with a beautiful presentation. Slice the cucumbers and mangoes thin and sprinkle the seeds evenly on top and enjoy your vibrant salad all summer long.
