I’ve been on the lookout for recipes that are light and easy to make for summer nights. Ideally something healthy as I’m scared at the thought of beach season quickly approaching. Anything involving mango and cilantro ranks very high on my list as I could eat either by the bag full. I even had thoughts of not sharing this salad.
Mangoes were on sale at the Market District where I shop and there was a sample lady with a salad similar to this one. Hers used red onion, and I am not sure what the dressing was. I simply used olive oil and vinegar. The result is a great mix of sweet and sharp flavors, which I love. This and the latest issue of Vanity Fair were my sides for dinner last night. I am not sure what Sofia Vergara is up to besides Modern Family and being engaged to Pittsburgh’s Joe Manganiello (I keep hoping I will see them together around town), but I guess I will find out.
2 large mangoes diced
1/2 onion diced
2 tablespoons of chopped cilantro
There are many variations of this salad and this one from Epicurious looks really good.
