I was trying to find the perfect summer salad that was refreshing, sweet, and light. I always like the idea of pairing fruit with veggies and some sort of herb. Mangoes are in season right now so they would be perfectly ripe for this salad. The fennel adds a clean crunch and the lime-mint dressing really brings these flavors forward. The best part about this salad is that it requires only a few ingredients and it is very easy to make. Everyone will love it!
-1 medium fennel bulb
-2 ripe mangoes
-1 Tbsp olive oil
-juice of 1 lime
-1.5 tsp chile flakes
-1/4 cup chopped mint leaves (packed)
-S & P to taste
Take out a cutting board and slice your mangoes into bite-sized pieces and place them in a mixing bowl. Then cut the fennel bulb into then slices, if you are unfamiliar with how to properly cut a fennel bulb follow the directions from this youtube video. places sliced fennel into the mixing bowl as well. Then add the juice of 1 lime, olive oil, pepper flakes, chopped mint, and S & P. Toss until mixture is evenly coated. Serve cold and enjoy!
