Great salad. Would have never thought to mix all these ingredients together to create something this good. Don't like Spinach and I'm not crazy about mango but I gave it a chance and found it to be very interesting and delicious. I was afraid this would become a bland mess of stuff mixed together but was amazed how you can taste each and every ingredient separately and yet each one goes so well together with the others... Will be making this again SOON! A Read More

A nice salad. I left out the tomatoes as I didn't like the idea of mangoes and tomatoes together. I found the dressing a little on the bland side I would probably use a balsamic vinegar dressing next time. Read More

Fantastic! The dressing makes this salad zing and it really improves if you can make it at least a few hours ahead of time. It's punch comes from the combination of pepper and mango-- I recommend using only white pepper as it's intense bite is a nicer compliment to the mango. Yet if you only have black pepper you will still create a great tasting salad. We enjoy this with Seared Scallops with Spicy Papaya Sauce (found on allrecipes.com) Read More

While I liked everything together the dressing was very tart not necessarily a bad thing. I used raspberry champagne vinegar as I didn't realize I was out of white wine vinegar. I will reduce vinegar by at least half and up the sugar a tad next time which will still make enough dressing for this amount of salad. Read More

I doubled the amount of everything except the spinach and fed 5 for lunch. We had plenty of leftovers. Mango was a delightful addition. The dressing was very tart and I added about 1/8 c of sugar. I would add more next time. Husband and company loved the salad. I will make it again. It was great with soup and sourdough rolls on a cold day! Read More

Really great presentation! Left out the avocado and my wife vetoed the dressing after tasting it. We used a bottled light raspberry vinegarette instead. I was concerned it might be too sweet but the salad got raves. Read More

I just had to add some cheese. I thought it needed just a little bit more flavor contrast. Feta this time but I think blue Cheese would be better..... Read More
