After the storm on Sunday afternoon, the weather felt so warm and tropical. So in keeping with the mood, I prepared one of my favourite salads to have with a roasted leg of lamb. Its pretty healthy and the mangoes make you feel like Summer is already here. Oh and of course, its quick and easy, otherwise you wouldn't find it in my recipe book. I've halved the ingredients in these photos because it was just for me and my hubby.
Pan fry 3 bacon rashers or cheat and buy diced, and allow to cool.( this doesn't look like half??)
Arrange a platter of any mixed lettuce that takes your fancy.
Peel and slice 2 mangoes and 2 avocados into wedges and arrange on top of the lettuce. I like to make pretty rings around the edge of the platter, one for one. (My idea of being creative!!)
Sprinkle diced bacon and 1/2 cup chopped walnuts in the centre of the platter.
Whisk in a small bowl, 1tbl of cream, 2 tbl lemon juice, 1 tsp mustard grain and 1/4 cup of olive oil and pour over the salad.
Serve with lamb, bar-b-cued meat, chicken or fish. Fresh, simple, mostly healthy, but delicious!
