Mango and Spinach Salad with Langostines

I went to the market to get a lemon and ended up with everything but.  A shrewd fruit seller saw me coming and I had no chance.  After days of eating exotic finds I finally had to get rid of the enormous mango she insisted I needed.  I tried to keep telling her it was only me at home and she was having no part of my excuses.  So on a crazy hot day I made a savory salad featuring my mango.  I also had some langostines, ones I caught eying the mango in the kitchen.  What a perfect pair they were.

  • 1 large mango, peeled and chopped. image from web.stagram.com
  • 1/2 1 small red onion, sliced
  • 6 cups spinach, torn in large pieces
  • 8 langostines, steamed, shelled and in pieces
  • 1/3 cup chopped peanuts
  • 1/2 tbsp Vindaloo
  • the juice of 1 lemon
  • 1/3 cup Peanut Oil

Toss the fruit, vegetables,fish and peanuts in a large bowl, mix in vindaloo.  Finish with lemon juice and Peanut Oil.  Chill until you are ready to serve.
