Spring Mango Salad

[donotprint]I’ve mentioned before that my favorite fruit is mangoes. So I was very happy when the National Mango Board contacted me to try different kinds of mangoes available during the year. I first received a box of mangoes marked according to their level of ripeness, which was very helpful to learn. Last week I received another shipment, but this time it was a box of delicious ataulfo mangoes. I had never had this kind before, they are very similar to manila mangoes, though. I wasn’t sure what I was going to make with them, but after watching this video of Chef Allen Susser I decided to make a salad that turned out delicious. Since Atulfo magoes are available since early April I decided to name this salad Spring Mango Salad:[/donotprint]

Spring Mango Salad

The ingredients:

  • 2 Atulfo mangoes, diced
  • 1 red bell pepper, juliened
  • 2 celery stalks, chopped
  • 1/4 red onion, sliced
  • 2 cups cherry tomatoes, cut in half
  • whole romain lettuce leaves
  • 1 TBSP balsamic vinegar
  • 2 TBSP extra virgin olive oil
  • the juice of 1 lime
  • sea salt

The how-to:

  1. In a large bowl mix mangoes, bell pepper, celery and tomatoes.
  2. In a separate bowl whisk vinegar, evoo, lime and salt.
  3. Pour dressing over the salad and toss very well.
  4. Serve salad over romaine lettuce leaves and garnish with red onion.

  1. Mmm…mango! Looks like it's about time for me to pick up where I left off with Bittman's salads! This one sounds yummy. Have only seen this type once here and the little ones you mention as well. I'll have to keep my eyes open so I can try them (with chili lime salt!)

  2. Hi buddy, I discovered your internet site from wikipedia and examine a couple of of the other web site posts. They’re entirely astounding. Please retain it up. Really, Mark.

  3. That looks refreshing. What I'd do for a nice box of mangoes, they haven't hit our stores yet =(

  4. It looks like so delicious :) I love mangoes

  5. LOVE this. It has mangoes and tomatoes ;) And looks gorgeous. Wish you could ship some to me.
