Mango Blackberry Salad
If Seth had his way, we would be posting a picture of a bowl filled with blackberries. And only blackberries. And actually, it wouldn’t be a whole bowl filled with them. Probably just a small handful. Seth is very picky about fruit... The list of fruits he will eat consists of Granny Smith apples and sometimes a tiny bit of blackberries. Extensive, isn’t it? (Editor’s comment: This is completely false by the way.) Vegetables are a different story. He eats them happily. But since it is mother’s day, I am getting my way and mixing some blackberries with mango (the horror!) and then drizzling with some lime juice, zest, and fresh mint. A refreshing, simple salad.
6 ounces blackberries
1 large mango, diced
½ teaspoon lime zest
1 ½ teaspoons lime juice
1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh mint
Mix all the ingredients together in a medium-sized bowl then serve.
