Spinach & Mango Salad

This colorful spinach salad is a great alternative to your everyday green salad.

1 bunch spinach
½ bunch arugula

1 mango, peeled and diced
1 fennel bulb, grated or thinly sliced
1 cucumber, peeled and diced
1 avocado, diced
2 scallions, chopped
2 tablespoons fresh basil, chopped

1 tablespoon rice vinegar
1 lime, juice from
sectioned grapefruit (optional)

1. Thoroughly wash the spinach and arugula, pat or spin dry, and place in a bowl.

2. Combine the mango, fennel, cucumber, avocado, scallions, basil, rice vinegar and lime juice. Toss this with the spinach and arugula and serve garnished with sections of grapefruit.

Notes: “Baby” spinach and arugula is very tasty in this dish; it can be bought in bulk in the produce section. Arugula is a peppery tasting green, also often found in bulk or bunches. / If you don’t have or want to use fennel, you may substitute with celery. (Just use the white fennel bulb, not the green stalks.)

Preparation: 15 minutes; cooking time: 0; serves: 4

    I tried to purchase from your Amazon Store and ran into difficulty. “Forks over Knives ” and the “Happy Herbivore” went into your link for ordering but the “McDougall all you can eat” broke out of your site & went directly to Amazon without the other books. I am an Amazon customer but would like to see you get a little something too. Please advise how I can get around this. Thanks Darlene

      Hi Darlene, thank you! I’m not positive, but I know that I get credit for other things people buy that are not in my store as long as they start in my store. So in the end/checkout, they may lump them together. Let me know, thanks! :)
