Mango Caprese Salad

by

Here’s another great recipe from our anniversary potluck!

If you’re looking for a different take on the traditional caprese salad, try this Mango Caprese Salad recipe, courtesy of the National Mango Board, a client of ours. The mango lends a delicate sweetness — a nice foil to the whole milk mozzarella. And if you pair it with your favorite glass of Riesling, you’re in for a delicious (and refreshing) treat. Enjoy!

Mango Caprese Salad

Prep time: 15 minutes

3 large, ripe mangoes, peeled and pitted
8 oz. fresh mozzarella cheese, halved and thinly sliced
3 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
3 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
Sea salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
Snipped fresh basil
Toasted baguette slices

Carefully cut away the two largest pieces of fruit from each mango, then cut away the 2 sides.  Slice mango and place on a platter, alternating with slices of mozzarella.  Drizzle with lemon juice and oil and season with salt and pepper.  Sprinkle with basil and serve with baguette slices.  Makes 8 to 10 appetizer servings.
