Mango, mozzarella & basil salad

Now that summer is almost on it's way (here's hoping!) here is a really light, fresh and fragrant salad that not only tastes delicious but is super easy to do!

Makes a great mid week light lunch or supper, or a starter if you have friends over!

Serves 2
What you need:
a mango - sliced, or use chopped mango from a packet
pack of fresh mozzarella - full fat! (the half fat one just doesn't taste the same)
1/2 red chilli - deseeded and finely chopped
handful pine nuts - lightly toast them in a pan until they are just turning brown
handful fresh basil - torn into little bits
handful chives - finely chopped
drizzle of balsamic glazed
drizzle of olive oil
What you do:
Arrange the mango and mozzarella on a plate. Sprinkle the torn basil, chives, red chilli and toasted pine nuts over the top. Drizzle balsamic glaze and olive oil over it all and season. Enjoy!
Top tips:
Make sure you don't burn the pine kernels - they will taste very bitter!
My husband loves this with parma ham
