I was so amazed at how simple but full of flavour this dish is! The original recipe is a bit fancier than mine, but I thought I would substitute some ingredients so that it becomes an everyday lunch rather than fancy starter. So where the recipe calls for rocket, fresh basil and serrano ham, I just bought the salad that coop had on offer (I am a student after all!), dried basil (easier to store in the cupboard) and normal ham.
Et voilà! My ingredients!
As you can see, the salad only consists of four elements meaning that I can actually afford to treat myself to it as lunches! It's really quick and easy to make as well. My only issue being that I have issues cutting mangos properly! I always make a mess of it. But other than that it's very easy!
Luckily one of my house mates swooped in to help me with my mango difficulties!
Essentially just roughly cut up as much mango, ham and mozzarella as you want and mix it in with the salad! Then that takes us to the dressing. The quantities on the recipe serve 4, but I kind of ignored them and just did everything to taste. I tend to like a fair bit of dressing on salads otherwise I get a bit bored of them, so I did roughly 2tblsp of olive oil, 3tblsp of sweet chilli sauce, the juice of half a small lime and 1tblsp dried basil. I really like the taste of sweet chilli, so others might want to lower the amount of it.
All you need for a flavoursome dressing!
