Juicy mango complements the zesty balsamic vinaigrette in a savory, 20-minute side salad.
Updated Dec 22, 2009

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup chopped pecans
  • 5 cups torn mixed salad greens
  • 1 medium mango, seed removed, peeled and cut up (3/4 to 1 cup)
  • 1/4 cup sliced green onions (about 4 medium)
  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinaigrette or other oil-and-vinegar dressing
  • 2 slices bacon, cooked, crumbled

Steps

  • 1
    Heat oven to 350°F. In shallow pan, spread pecans. Toast in oven 5 to 8 minutes, stirring occasionally, until light brown; cool.
  • 2
    In large serving bowl, toss salad greens, mango, green onions and vinaigrette. Top with bacon and pecans. Serve immediately.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    No mango? Other fruits, such as raspberries, grapes or nectarines, will work well, too.
  • tip 2
    Instead of toasting pecans, substitute candied pecans found in the snack section of the grocery store.
