Recipe: Mango Strawberry Salad

Mango Strawberry Salad is a refreshing, delicious, colourful summer time salad. Easy to make, it can be served as a side dish or as a light meal. We enjoy this salad as a light lunch option as I add mozzarella which makes it filling. As for the dressing, add any of your choice.

Natural sweetness from the fruits, bite from the roasted almond, refreshing flavour from the mint and protein rich with those grassy slightly tangy mozzarella balls. I prefer to use a vinaigrette. I’m actually quite gullible when it comes to salads with fruits, can eat a huge bowlful of it. No wonder most of my salads feature some sort of fruit.

Sharing This Recipe With Shhh Cooking Secretly Group

This month Anu who blogs at Ente Thattukada suggested the theme mango. She asked us to prepare any dish using raw or ripe mango. I wanted to make Mango Mastani which is my list like forever, but couldn’t. So I decided on a simple but delicious salad using both mango and strawberries. Please do check out what Anu has prepared using mango.


My Partner

This group requires partners. They give each other two secret ingredients to use in their dish. The others then guess the secret ingredients. Once again have partnered with Archana who blogs at The Mad Scientist’s Kitchen. I gave her milk and salt. Using those two ingredients she has prepared my all time favourite Aamras. When the mango season is full on, we enjoy aamras. Sometimes I make puri but our favourite is Padvari Rotli. These soft rotis pair so well with the fresh aamras.

Archana suggested I use mozzarella and mint. Incidentally the ingredients were perfect for my summer Mango Strawberry Salad.

    Mayuri, I will do anything to get my hands on this yum salad. Unfortunately my strawberry season is long over so I skipped the use of strawberries to recreate this recipe. We definitely loved our meal and now I ma freezing some mangoes to make the salad with fresh strawberries later.
