Mango Strawberry Mesclun Salad


For this month's IFC, we are exploring Bordeaux Cuisine from France. Bordeaux, a port city in southwestern France, is known for its fine-tasting wines. The Bordeaux cuisine is full of very particular flavors, aromas, and colors. Saraswathi, the host for this month, gave us 3 wonderful recipes from this region from which I chose to make this salad.

Mesclun is a mix of assorted salad leaves, originating in France. The traditional mix includes chervil, arugula, leafy lettuces and endive, but you can use any mix of greens. This colorful salad with greens, strawberries, mango and cranberries makes a refreshing summer treat. Serve with soup and bread or as a side to grilled foods.
