Mango Broccoli Artichoke and Pesto Salad

Mango Broccoli Artichoke and Pesto Salad

Posted 2013-11-22 by Maddy Butlerfollow
This came about when I realised I had nothing left in the pantry other than these four main ingredients. I'm grateful now that this happened, as this salad tastes amazing and, with a smattering of chilli flakes, it sure packs a punch. It's fresh and slightly tart while slightly sweet - an unusual but beautiful combination.



I used radish leaf pesto in this salad, however, most pestos should work well, particularly herb-based pestos. The bitterness of the radish leaf pesto offsets the sweetness of the mango and vice versa, resulting in a delicate balance.



Preparation Time: 10 minutes
Makes: 1 serving (multiply for more people)

Ingredients (per person)
1 small mango
1/2 cup broccoli florets
2 artichokes
2 tbsp pesto
Juice of 1/4 lemon
1 tsp apple cider vinegar
Salt and chilli flakes

Method
  • Cut the sides of the mango.



  • Score the sides with a small knife.



  • Using a spoon, scoop out the pieces and place in a large bowl. (As I was only making lunch for one, I made the salad directly in the serving bowl.)



  • Chop the broccoli as desired and place in the bowl with the mango.



  • Chop the artichoke into small pieces and add to the bowl.



  • Pour over the lemon juice and vinegar and season with salt and chilli flakes. Combine well.
  • Divide the mixture among the serving bowls. Using a teaspoon, top the salad with small dollops of the pesto. Enjoy!
