Salad Days – Part III of ….

After last week’s rather insipid salad I decided to pull out a couple of the ‘big guns’ : Mangoes and Macadamias.   This is a quick and easy salad to put together, and it tastes crunchy and sweet.

Best of all, because it is called a ‘salad’  it must be healthy, regardless of the saturated fat content of the macadamias.

Mango and Macadamia Salad

Mango & macadamia salad with sweet chilli dressing

Arrange on a plate

  • baby lettuce leaves
  • 1 lebanese cucumber – sliced
  • 1 mango- sliced
  • 1/3 cup chopped macadamia nuts (go on – add a few more – it’s a salad!)

Then drizzle over

  • 1/4 cup sweet chilli sauce and
  • 2 tbs lime juice

Meant to serve 4 – but I reckon serves 2
