California designer Shiree Hanson Segerstrom's weekly tips for decorating, gardening, and stylish living

Greens with Mango, Black Beans, Red Pepper, Walnuts and Roasted Garlic





















 
 
 
For a delicious way to get a big portion of your daily requirements of fruits, vegetables, nuts and beans out of the way in one fell swoop, try this big salad I created for lunch last week.

mixed greens
roasted red bell peppers, chopped
mango, chopped
black beans
toasted walnuts, chopped
roasted garlic cloves, sliced
lime juice
extra virgin olive oil
fresh ground sea salt and pepper

For this dish I used roasted bell peppers I had prepared the night before for another dish. I purchased the roasted garlic at the olive bar at Safeway.

To toast walnut halves, break them up and put them in a small skillet over medium heat. Watch them carefully because they burn easily.

Place greens on a ten inch plate and top with remaining ingredients. Salt and pepper generously. Squeeze a generous amount of lime juice over salad and top with olive oil.

You can size this dish to each individual palate. I like to use generous portions of the toppings for maximum deliciousness. Don't skimp.

Amazing flavors, nutritious and super easy!

Enjoy your weekend, Shiree'
