Mango and Rocket Salad with a Chilli Lime Dressing

You might have noticed by now that I love to add fruit to my salads. It gives such a deliciously sweet contrast to the crunchy leaves and really brings a summery flavour to the dish. This salad is definitely up there with my favourite salads of all time, and trust me, there is some fierce competition. The soft and sweet mango is definitely complemented by the crisp rocket, and the chilli lime dressing is just incredible. The citrus brings such a refreshing feel to the dish, with the added kick given by the chilli flakes to really awaken your taste buds.

Serves 2

  • 2 bowls of rocket (arugula)
  • 1 mango
  • A handful of pomegranate seeds
  • A handful of sunflower seeds

For the dressing

  • 1 tsp extra virgin olive oil
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 1 tsp chilli flakes
  • 1/2 tsp paprika



Simply mix all the ingredients for your dressing together and drizzle over your rocket, tossing a few times to ensure the leaves are fully coated. Chop your mango into bite sized chunks and mix in with the rocket. Finally, spinkle the pomegranate and sunflower seeds over your salad and serve. Enjoy!
