Lovely Marinated Mango with Rose Petals
The super-talented Sarah Britton, author of the blog My New Roots, shared this sensational summer salad with us. The surprise—it’s savory, making it a great companion to a heated dish with Latin flavors or enjoyable on its own. Thanks, Sarah!
Marinated Mango with Rose Petals
Serves 2–3 as a snack
2 ripe mangoes
1 large lime (organic if possible)
1 fresh chili, minced + dried if desired
Coarse sea salt
Fresh wild rose petals (optional)
- Begin by preparing the mango: slice off both sides around the pit, score halves, fold outwards and cut off into cubes. Place in a large bowl.
- Zest and juice the lime into the bowl with the mango. Mince chilies and add to the bowl, along with dried chilies, sea salt and rose petals. Fold to combine. Let marinate for 15–30 minutes. Serve.
