There is nothing like a big salad on a sunny evening. We were in the country last weekend so we made the most of the local produce around us. Yes, mango is certainly not local, but all the other ingredients were- I promise! ;)
This is my mango and chilli salad. I have never met anybody who had eaten this kind of thing, but it always goes down a treat. This recipe feeds 4 hungry people.
- 3 mangoes
- 1 lettuce
- 1 teaspoon of Cayenne pepper
- 1 chilli (depending on the spice-factor you like)
- balsamic vinegar and olive oil
- flowers to garnish (I’m such a girl!)
You cut up the mangoes and lettuce and mix them up.
For the dressing, you simply cut up the chillies in small pieces and mix them with about 4 tbsps of extra virgin olive oil, salt and pepper. Drizzle this over the salad just before serving and then pour over the balsamic vinegar.
Finally, add a flower and Bob’s your uncle! (Australian expression?)
Of course, these Mojitos went down a treat with it. Mmmm.
Let me know what you think! x
