Waterfront Market Arugula and Mango Salad


Defrost 14 oz. frozen La Fe (or other) mango slices, available in KW at the Waterfront Market. Empty into bowl. Slice mangos into smaller pieces and return to bowl. Add ½ cup mild olive oil, 1 TBS rice vinegar, 2 TBS fresh lime juice (juice of one half lime), one half to 1 tsp sugar if necessary, salt to taste, and mix together.

Serve over two bunches washed arugula with freshly ground pepper. Chunks or slices of peeled, seeded cucumber would be good with it, too, I'd imagine.

Waterfront Salad II




Arrange arugula on plates. Add slices of fennel and seeded pieces of tangerine. Serve with vinaigrette made with extra virgin olive oil and balsamic vinegar.

A few cold shrimp may be also be served with this salad, if available.
