Here’s a nice, easy, refreshing and absolutely great-for-the-eyes Spring or Summer Supper for two very hungry adults or four who want to add a tuna or chicken salad alongside.. Have it with a loaf of French bread and dip the slices in olive oil, then sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. It just might call for a cooling Chardonnay or Pinot Grigio and perhaps a lemon sorbet for dessert.
Mango and Feta Cheese Salad
2 tsp. Balsamic vinegar
1 Tbls. Olive Oil (EVOO)
1 Cup sliced red onion
2 Cups cubed mango
1 Cup cubed avocado
1 Cup cubed cucumber
1 Cup tomato, cubed or pieces
½ Cup sliced radishes
½ Cup feta cheese, cubed
4 Cups lettuce, shredded into small pieces.
Salt and pepper to taste, but I never think either is necessary.
Blend vinegar and olive oil and whisk in a large bowl. Add onion, mango, avocado, cucumber, tomato and radishes and toss well to coat all ingredients .
Divide lettuce between two dinner plates, spoon salad on top and divide feta over each plate.
In addition to all the Vitamin A and C, there’s plenty of protein in this dish, and about 600 calories.
