Bugs Bunny Salad
Best Served with Warm Hearty Bread
Grill over high heat. Reserve, warm, separately.
Juice limes over avocado slices, and salt generously.
Sweat minced garlic until translucent, adding black beans and taco seasoning and stirring until fragrant. Chop pecans roughly and add. Sautee until pecans are toasted and beans just start to fall apart. Reserve over low heat.
Fresh Mango, diced
Mince the herbs finely and coat fresh mango.
Chop into bite-size pieces and toss together with salt and pepper. If serving guests with differing tolerances for bitterness, keep bitter greens separate.
At last minute, put all elements except for the carrot in a bowl, tossing until well mixed and evenly coated. Top with salt and pepper, and garnish with whole carrot. Rub the carrot with dressing for shine, if desired.
Rebecca made us such a good salad the other night we asked her to write down everything so we could keep the recipe! It was Bugs Bunny's birthday and how perfect to have a carrot on top.
