Garden Salad with Dry mangoes

This spinach salad is my latest favorite. Simple and delicious.This salad is super as a side or just on its own. You can really use any dried fruit in this salad. Work with what’s on sale or what you have on hand. Even regular raisins are really good. Dried blueberries are amazing, but going to cost a lot more. Keep it simple.

Salad Secrets:

  • Always select fresh and firm vegetables and fruits. Start with the best quality and handle the ingredients carefully, so that there is no loss of nutrients.When putting a salad together, think like an artist. Work towards a contrast colors,shapes and flavours.
  • Garnish simply but  attractively.
  • Except for hot salads, ensure that the salads are always served chilled.
  • If you want to store the lettuce, clean them drain the vegetables and fruits thoroughly .Wrap them loosely in a clean towel. Place them in the crisper and refrigerate.
