Mango Cheddar Salad
So in keeping with my promise of celebrating Salad week here is another favourite of mine. I love mangoes but here I have to mention I love my 'Gulab Khas' mangoes the most. They are a variant from the eastern state of Bihar in India and is famous for its rosy aroma, sharp sweet intermixed with a tart taste and its that beautiful aroma and the tangy sweet taste that which gives me sheer joy.
Well so the point is this salad combines fresh greens, cubes of firm but ripe mangoes and shavings of Mild Cheddar with a Balsamic Vinaigrette dressing.
1 mango cut up in small pieces
20gm to 30gm cheddar shavings
1 cup of torn red leaf lettuce
For the dressing :-
1 tsp Balsamic vinegar
Salt as per taste
Freshly crushed pepper as per taste
2 tsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil.
Assemble your ingredients for the salad and chill it in the refrigerator but remember not to use the dressing when chilling it else your salad becomes a soggy mess.
Right when you want to have a delightful plate of salad whisk together the ingredients of the dressing and pour it over your salad and enjoy a beautiful meal.
