I really enjoyed this salad; I think it has a lovely balance of sweetness and bitterness. There is also an interesting mix of textures; mangoes have a lovely soft texture while the rest of the ingredients are crunchier, I love that. Do you add fruit to your salads? I do, especially in summer, when we make this mango salad recipe a lot.
I made this mango salad recipe for the first time a couple of months ago and everybody loved it. For me it has similar flavours to a Thai salad; could be because of the lemon & ginger dressing.
This is a simple salad recipe that requires only a few ingredients: mangoes, spinach, blueberries, carrots, onion, red peppers and coriander. But you can play around with the ingredients to suit your own individual tastes. I usually have this salad for dinner; it’s colourful and refreshing. It’s also vegan and gluten free.
My aim this summer is to eat more salads, if you would like to do the same here are some of my go-to salads:
I think these salads are so filling, which is great as I don’t have to cook a second dish.
