This is an awesome salad. It has that perfect mix of sweet and savoury as the flavours of the mango and pomegranates are perfectly balanced by the lambs lettuce, avocado and pumpkin seeds. The textures also complement each other so well, with the soft chunks of mango and avocado contrasting against the crunchy bites of pumpkin seeds and pomegranates. While these ingredients taste amazing on their own, they become a trillion times more delicious when the world’s best salad dressing is added. The combination of mango, apple cider vinegar, avocado, chilli, paprika and honey is too good.
For the salad
– 1 mango
– 2 avocados
– 2/3 a cup of pomegranates
– 2/3 of a cup of sunflower seeds
– 2 zucchinis/courgettes
– 2 bowls of mixed leafs, I used a combination of lambs lettuce and rocket
For the mango chilli dressing
– 1 mango
– 1 avocado
– 1 teaspoon of chilli flakes
– ½ a teaspoon of paprika
– 2 dessert spoons of apple cider vinegar
– 1 teaspoon of honey
– a sprinkling of salt
For the dressing: place all of the dressing ingredients in the food processor, having peeled the mango and avocados and removed their stones. Blend into a thick creamy deliciousness, if you like it a little less thick add a little extra water.
To make the salad simply slice the mango and avocado into small cubes and the zucchinis into thin half moons. Place the chopped veg in a salad bowl with the leafs, sunflower seeds and pomegranates. Then mix in the dressing. Yum.
