Mixed Green Salad with Grilled Scallions, Mango, and Cilantro-Lime Vinaigrette

Scott Phillips

Servings: 4 to 6

The addition of mango and cilantro and the chile-lime make this salad pair well with either Indian cuisine or Latin American dishes.

Ingredients

  • 3 Tbs. fresh lime juice
  • 1 tsp. honey
  • 2 Tbs. chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1/2 tsp. minced Serrano chile (including seeds)
  • Kosher salt
  • 1/4 cup plus 1 Tbs. extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 large bunches scallions (6 oz.), trimmed
  • 5 oz. (5 cups) mixed baby greens
  • 1 large mango, peeled, cut from pit, and thinly slicedĀ 
  • 1/3 cup coarsely chopped salted peanuts

Preparation

  • Prepare a medium-high gas or charcoal grill fire or heat a grill pan over medium-high heat.
  • In a small bowl, combine the lime juice, honey, cilantro, Serrano, and a pinch of salt. Gradually whisk in the 1/4 cup of oil.
  • Toss the scallions with the remaining 1 Tbs. of oil and 1/2 tsp. salt. Grill the scallions until tender and lightly charred all over, 4 to 6 minutes. Cool slightly, then slice into 1/2-inch pieces.
  • In a large bowl toss the greens with enough vinaigrette to lightly coat. Add the scallions, mango, and peanuts. Toss and serve.

    Delicious and refreshing summer salad, but would do well year round.

    I followed the recipe exactly, but the dressing was inedible.
