Hot, sticky weather like this calls for negligible cooking in the house.
This hot spell is killing me. Today the thermometer read 32 degrees Celsius in the shade. IN THE SHADE! And that doesn't even account for humidity. So there was no way I was about to fry, roast, or simmer anything in the kitchen, which leaves: grilling and salad.
UPDATE: Nutrition Facts added at the end.
Based on what I had on hand, and inspired by several different mango salad recipes, here is what I served, and it was delicious.
- 1/2 head of romaine lettuce
- 1 ripe mango, diced
- 2 ripe avocados, diced
- 1/2 small onion minced (red onion if you have it)
- 1 small ripe tomato, diced
- 1 can black beans
- 1/4 cup cilantro, coarsely chopped
- juice of 1/2 lemon
- juice of 1/2 orange
- juice of 1 lime
- 1 clove garlic, pressed
Tear lettuce into small pieces and place in bottom of salad bowl.
Combine remaining ingredients and place on top of lettuce.
Easy, eh? (If you like things spicy, this would be a great recipe to add a dash of cayenne or jalapeno to.)
