This salad is delicious, with added almonds and cocount it is high in protein & vitamines, low in fat, and so beautiful it looks like dessert. I have see it turn non-tuna eaters into tuna eaters, non-mango eaters into mango-eaters.
Its a real go to recipe…1 can of tuna & 1 ripe mango easily makes 2 generous servings…
lightly toast about 1/4c ALMOND SLIVERS in a dry pan over low-med heat–watch carefully
Dice A ripe MANGO (cut off the stem, stand it up and peel off skin with knife, find the direction the pit is oriented run the knife down and along side of it filleting the mango off the pit, cut the excess from the pit) dice into smallish pieces.
Drain a can of WATER-PACKED TUNA
Make a salad bed of FRESH GREENS (eg:SPINACH & ROMAINE–for crispness)
add thin slice SWEET SPANISH ONIONS & RED PEPPER
Make salad dressing: 1 parts BALSAMIC, 2 part OLIVE OIL, tablespoon of MILD OR SPICY CURRY PASTE, S&P to taste
lightly drizzle a little dressing on the greens & toss (do not overdo it…it wont need lots)
lightly drizzle a little on the tuna & toss (again, don’t overdo it)
Create the individual salads BY LAYERING:
finally top with SHREDDED COCONUT
BEAUTIFUL! Just wait till you taste it….
