Summery mango salad with blueberry/ginger vinaigrette
Evening babes, TGIF am I right?! I am so tired these days, so I had hoped to be able to sleep in this weekend, but something much more exciting is happening tomorrow, so I guess I can do without the extra sleep. My parents got me a greenhouse and my dad assembled most of it as a surprise while I was in Morocco. Tomorrow he is coming by to (hopefully) finish it and I am so excited! It will be the perfect place to not only grow tomatoes and other goodies, but also to create a cosy place to take cover when the Danish weather acts up – I can’t to curl up in there among the plants with a cup of tea and a good book ♥
Earlier this week I got busy working on new summery recipes that I cannot wait to share with you guys, a couple of them might be used in some of my freelance jobs, so you will have to wait a bit for those, but I am able to share this vibrant and beyond delicious mango salad that I created with the leftovers from the other recipes. It is filling, full of flavor and absolutely bursting with nutrients – a must try!
