Strawberry Mango Salad

Salad is a staple at our place. However, it can get very mundane and I am constantly dreaming up new ways to add flavors and ingredients. I present to you, Strawberry and Mango Salad.

Think fresh Pico de Gallo, but substitute the veggies for fruit. Really you could use just the fruit concoction and serve it as a summer appetizer with pita chips or tortilla chips.

Ingredients for topping:
  • Strawberries
  • Mango
  • Cilantro
  • Green onion
  • Juice of 1/2 to 1 lime
  • Salt & Pepper
*Quantities vary on how many salads you're making and preference.

Ingredients for Vinaigrette:
  •  1 clove chopped garlic
  • 1/2 t. Dry mustard
  • 1 T. Brown Sugar
  • 4 oz. Red Wine Vinegar
  • 1 oz. Olive Oil
  - make in a dressing container, or something that you can shake up as the ingredients separate. I recommend to not store in the refrigerator because the oils harden.

Really you could serve this salad without the dressing and just keep it to the lime juice, maybe adding a little olive oil to the fruit mix to give it more coating.

Tip: put lettuce or other "salad" leaf into a bowl and coat with dressing, then add the toppings. I've found that having the flavor distributed on each leaf really makes the salad more enjoyable.
