Shrimp Mango Toss Recipe Will Be Your New Favorite Salad — So Easy + Delicious

Green Tabasco sauce is the secret ingredient in our quick-prep dressing 

When the temperatures are rising outside, the last thing you want to is cook over a hot stove. That’s why we love a good salad. The only trouble? Sometimes they can get a bit boring. To the rescue: Our Shrimp Mango Toss recipe. We paired succulent shrimp with sweet mango and creamy avocado for the perfect mix of flavors and textures.

Tying it all together is a zesty citrus vinaigrette that gets a quick hit of heat thanks to green Tabasco sauce. We like to use mixed greens for our base, but arugula would be just as delicious plus give it a nice peppery kick. 

Also making this super speedy? We start with precooked shrimp. But if you have a bit more time, grilled shrimp would make it even more delicious. And be sure to check out our hack for peeling mangoes before you start. Give the salad a go, and let us know how you like it in the comments!
