Mango and Pecan Salad

March 1, 2012 § Leave a comment


The beauty of a salad shines through when you assemble them on an individual serving plate. When you make salads in a big bowl, chances are the smaller bits will sink to the bottom. The visual appeal of food is just as important as taste and can easily enhance the dining experience. When creating your own salads, keep in mind the taste, colour and texture when combing ingredients.

Prep time 10 minutes

3/4 cup (185 ml) chopped spinach
3/4 cup (185 ml) mixed greens
1/2 mango cut into 1/2 inch pieces
2 tbsp (30 ml) goat’s cheese (optional)
1/8 cup (35 ml) pecans

Arrange the ingredients on a plate in the order listed and toss with your favorite dressing.

Salads that eat like a meal, like this one here, can be healthy snacks that tie down your appetite between meals.

1/8 cup (30 ml) roughly chopped walnuts.
