Recipe: Mango-Salsa Salad

Tonight’s dinner combined my farmers market salsa making inspiration with my memories from the mango salsa and salads at Costa Vide. I made it for one serving, but you could multiply it easily.
Above: salsa. Below: full salad.

3 cups salad greens, loosely packed 

1 mango, chopped

¼ cup cheddar (or jack) cheese, shredded

½ cup salsa*

 1 recipe Honey-Lime Dressing**

¼ onion

1 jalapeño pepper

1 garlic clove

3 Tbsp. fresh cilantro

2 Tbsp. lime juice
