Mango Mesclun Salad with Ginger Carrot Dressing

    30 mins

    Here's a luxurious salad that mixes flavours from around the world. Mesclun simply means a mixture of salad leaves, coming from the Provençal word for 'mixture'. It traditionally includes chicory, lamb's lettuce and dandelion leaves, but feel free to use any mix of greens. The dressing adds a Chinese twist.

    Although this is an attractive, quality salad, I must stress that the sesame oil DOMINATES the entire salad and meal if you don't cut it at least by half (in my opinion). I also added a dash of fine sugar to the rice vinegar in order to boost the fruit's power while tempering the sesame oil. I tried serving this with arugula, as well as the mesclun mix, and both fared equally well with about 40-50 guests.  -  28 Feb 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I personally liked this salad a lot, although I like to try new things. A guest said they preferred "regular' salad. If any modifications, I'd cut down just a little on the oil, and add chopped red onions.  -  07 Dec 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    The dressing forthis was so easy - elements I always have in my kitchen - the mango added nice color and flavor. I used spinach from a bag. still really good. added some romaine for crunch. the dressing and mango are the punch, any greens would be honored to be adorned with that mix!  -  01 Apr 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
