The Salad With A Glow!

Since I've moved in with my husband and adjusted to married life, I have been diving into home cooking head first and have really enjoyed it.  One thing that I haven't attempted so far is to create a luxury salad, one that you can either eat on its own or pair with chicken etc.  The other day I purchased Madeleine Shaw's new book "Ready Steady Glow" and I couldn't wait to try her Mango and Avocado salad recipe.

"I adore the taste and texture of this fruit and veg combo - the juicy mango and creamy avocado go so well together.  It's a great salad to beat the bloat; mango is beneficial for digestion as it contains prebiotic dietary fibre that feeds the good bacteria in your gut that help break down food."

Recipe from "Ready Steady Glow", by the lovely Madeleine Shaw.

You will need:

50g Cashews
1 mango, peeled and stoned
1 avocado, peeled and stoned
Juice of 2 limes
1 red chilli finely sliced (deseeded if you like)
1 tsp freshly grated ginger
50g rocket
2 tbsp finely chopped mint

  • Heat a small dry frying pan to a medium-high heat and toast the cashews for 5 minutes, shaking the pan to prevent them from burning.
  • Once they have browned slightly, tip them onto a plate to cool.
  • Finely slice the mango and avocado and toss in half of the lime juice to prevent them from browning.
  • Mix the remaining lime juice with the chilli and ginger.
  • Pile up the rocket, mango and avocado in the middle of the plate.
  • Throw over the toasted cashews, drizzle over the spicy dressing and scatter over the chopped mint.

Now tuck in and enjoy the glow!

  1. Very interesting blog. Many blogs I see these days do not really provide anything that attract others, but I am most definitely interested in this one. cooking head first and have virtually enjoyed it. One factor that i haven't tried to this point is to create a luxury salad, one that you may either devour on its own or pair with bird etc. I'm working at Outdoor Advertising Ad Companies in Amritsar the alternative day i purchased Madeleine Shaw's new book "prepared consistent Glow" and that i couldn't wait to strive her Mango and Avocado salad recipe. uicy mango and creamy avocado pass so nicely collectively. it's a high-quality salad to conquer the bloat; mango is useful for digestion as it incorporates prebiotic nutritional fibre that feeds the good micro organism on your gut that assist spoil down meals.

    1. Thank you so much... That's so nice to hear!
