Mango and Spinach Salad with Honey and Lime Dressing

This is one of my favourite summer salads, easy to make and very fresh.  These quantities are for 2 serves or 4 side salad serves so just increase all ingredients to suit larger numbers.

Ingredients

  • 1 large mango, peeled and sliced
  • ¼ cup of cashew halves or slivered toasted almonds (add more if you prefer)

Dressing Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 2 limes, juiced
  • 2 tablespoons of good quality honey (organic of possible), adjust amount to suit taste
  • Salt and pepper (fresh ground) to taste

Method

  1. In a large salad bowl combine spinach, mango slices, and cashews/almonds.
  2. In a mixing bowl whisk together the olive oil, lime juice and honey thoroughly and add salt and pepper if needed.
  3. Pour dressing over salad and toss to mix through.
