This is “Part Two” of my previous blog
“Mango Wrapped Coconut Macadamia Nut Crusted Tilapia”
I served this salad with it and I must say it just went perfectly together.
Now like I have said in a past blog I work for a local grocery chain (Remke bigg’s), and I will get products from time to time from our merchandisers. I recently got this product, that is not out yet, but it’s
So I’ve been trying to think of something to do with it, I do like it a lot, I’ve already made tuna salad with it and it gave it great flavor. So I was thinking about this salad that I have had before but used a creamy store bought poppy seed dressing. And thought well why not make a “Balsamic” Poppy Seed Dressing instead…
And you know, it was really, really good I must say, along with this salad my family got to partake in the eating of the fish recipe as well, when I was putting these couple of blogs together.
Ingredients for Dressing – along with a little sugar
add mayo, balsamic, sugar and half n half in a bowl and whisk it together
then add the poppy seeds and mix
Prep Mango and Avocado
Leftover Coconut Macadamia nut crusted topping
(from fish recipe, one right before this one) I toasted it until brown
Then add your lettuce and toss with tongs to coat leaves
I place the tossed greens on a platter,
then topped it with the mango & avocado pieces
You can certainly serve it just like that or use the topping
if you just make the salad you can add some toasted almond slivers,
pecans or whatever you like
Mango Avocado Salad with Balsamic Poppy Seed Dressing
1/4 cup Hellmann’s Balsamic Mayo
2 tbsp. half n half
1 1/2 tbsp. aged balsamic vinegar
2 tsp. sugar
1 1/2 tsp. Poppy seeds
In a small bowl add mayo, half n half, sugar & vinegar, whisk to combine then add poppy seeds. This can be kept for up to a week in a container in the refrigerator.
1 Mixed greens
1/3 cup of crispy topping
Peel and chop mango, open avocado, take seed out and scoop out fruit, chop. You may not use all the mango or avocado, its up to you and how much you want to use. This is what I use with a whole bag of mixed greens.
In a large bowl pour in about half of dressing, then add greens, toss to coat, if you need more dressing, pour it down the side of the bowl, and toss again, this just allows the greens coat evenly.
Place greens on a platter or individual plates, then top with mango, avocado and topping then serve!! Enjoy!!!
