Nutritional values

Papaya and mango contain antioxidants that help protect the body's cells from damaging free radicals. Mangos are also a good source of vitamin C, which strengthens the immune system and helps stimulate digestion.

For the finishing touch to this salad, add some pieces of melon to the noodles. This not only boosts flavor, but melon also protects the skin from irritation and reduces stress!
