Since it’s Friday, I thought I would keep it light and easy today. What follows is a recipe for a simple mango salad (featured above):
1 mango, sliced
This recipe goes by taste, so I omitted measurements (risky, I know – throw caution to the wind, everyone and abandon your measuring spoons!!).
First thing, get a pretty bowl. Seriously, it makes all the difference. Then, slice your mango into long, thin strips. Place the strips of mango in the pretty bowl. Drizzle with olive oil, sprinkle with sea salt and basil. That’s it!!!
If you want, you could add heirloom tomatoes. Tomato and mango taste REALLY good together. I promise.
Have a good weekend, everyone (I think our readership is up to 9 right now, so THANKS!!). If you get bored over the weekend, please review the following posts that can provide MINUTES of entertainment:
Joe Doe Review: In which Elana drinks GIN and is mesmerized by a fried pickle.
Pizza Lesson the First: Because, oh yes, there will be more. But this is a good one, so read it again (please).
Tomato Poem: Because I seriously got John to write a poem about a tomato. And it’s good.
And finally, the La Isla Review: we are as upset about it as you are.
