    Prep:20min  ›  Cook:5min  ›  Ready in:25min 

    1. Heat tawa on medium heat. Cook almonds on the tawa for 3-4 minutes. Take care to not let them burn. No oil is needed to roast them.
    2. Stir occasionally, until almonds are fragrant and lightly toasted.
    3. In a small bowl, mix red wine vinegar, balsamic vinegar, olive oil, mustard, tarragon, salt and pepper.
    4. In a medium bowl, toss the red wine vinegar mixture with the spinach and mangos. Top with the toasted almonds to serve.


    You can also toast the almonds in a dry frying pan over medium heat. Stir frequently and watch carefully so they don't burn!

    To make this recipe kid friendly...I added 1tbsp of brown sugar to the dressing and substituted the almond slivers with almond meal. I also used Creamy mild American mustard instead of dry. I added strawberrys. My 4 kids at every bite of this beautiful salad!!  -  15 Nov 2004  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This was pretty good. Instead of dry mustard, I used dijon. I also just used regular balsamic vinegar since I had never heard of maple flavored. I also used bagged spinach as a timesaver. Next time, I will add some strawberries.  -  24 Sep 2004  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This salad was very good, great combination of flavors. I didn't have maple flavored balsamic vinegar, so I used regular balsamic vinegar and added some real maple syrup.  -  26 May 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
