TROPICAL TUNA MANGO SALAD

Julyfood 091

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:
SALAD GREENS
TUNA
MANGO
ALMONDS
finally top with SHREDDED COCONUT

BEAUTIFUL! Just wait till you taste it….
