So Hubby had to bring appetizers to a work function so went to Stew Leonard’s and bought ready made dip and their wonderful corn tortilla chips. While there he saw a Mango Salsa and bought that too. He left that behind in the fridge the day of his work function. Why?
He had this brilliant idea for a salad based on something that was made in one of the restaurants where he used to work many years ago. He described it to me and it sounded tasty. He did most of this, I just toasted the coconut.
- romaine lettuce, torn
- red pepper slices
- mandarin oranges, drained
- toasted coconut
- mango salsa
He thinned the salsa with yogurt and added garlic and scallions And this was the dressing.
Now for homemade croutons:
Made with a three day old baguette, olive oil, and oregano (and garlic powder). These get toasted in the oven and then assemble the salad.
This was a nice flavored salad with different textures and nice color.
And we have our dinner.
