Salad with buckwheat porridge, mango, walnuts and orange sauce

In Slovenia, we are used to simple salads. Most salads play a secondary role and are mostly only seasoned with vinegar and oil. Today’s salad is a little different. It contains different flavors, combines vegetables and fruits – mango goes well with buckwheat porridge – and different textures – buckwheat porridge and mango are soft, and the salad and especially the nuts give the salad a crispy texture.

The main star of today’s recipe is the refreshing filling. The filling prepared from orange and lemon juice perfectly sweetens the honey, and the taste is lifted to a higher level by a teaspoon of apple cider vinegar. Garnishes play an important role in salads. The ingredients for the salad mix well and give it flavor.

Although it’s a good habit to eat a salad – a lot of people blow their nose in it – but to make the salad even more enjoyable, try replacing the regular vinegar and oil with one of the toppings listed below.

Mustard vinaigrette

Ingredients: 2 tablespoons mustard, 3 tablespoons cider vinegar, 1 tablespoon lemon juice, salt, pepper, 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme, 0.5 dcl olive oil olive, 1 sprig of fresh parsley

Avocado filling

Ingredients: 1/4 avocado, 1 juicy lime, 1/2 handful of roasted and salted cashews, 1/2 clove of garlic, 1 small handful of fresh basil, 1 small handful of fresh parsley, salt, pepper, olive oil needed
