We are approaching the time of year when mangoes are in season in the shops, so make the most of this golden-yellow fruit and try this delicious, fresh recipe. Using only a few ingredients, you can serve it as a side alongside a main, a starter to begin a meal, or even as a palate cleanser to finish. You will need to make sure that the mangoes are as ripe and as sweet as possible, so it may be worth waiting just a few more weeks until they are perfect.

  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 2 teaspoons of chilli oil
  • 2 teaspoons of soy sauce

  2. Juice the lime and combine this with the chili oil and soy sauce.
  3. Finely shred the spinach.
  4. Mash some of the chickpeas using a fork, but leave at least half of them whole.
  5. Combine the mango, spinach, and chickpeas in a bowl.
  6. Toss through the salad dressing and then sprinkle over the toasted nuts and seeds.
  7. Enjoy!
