This simple and easy Mango Arugula Salad Recipe is made with fresh mango, arugula, cranberries, nuts, and Parmesan Cheese. A delicious salad for any time of year.

It is just what I need to balance out my casseroles. If you are looking to lighten things up a bit for lunch or dinner, like I am, this is a great Arugula salad recipe to change things up.

This recipe makes a great meal on its own or you can serve it with a bowl of Roasted Vegetable Soup. Mangoes are available now in some parts of the world and will be more prevalent in the next few months.

Mango Arugula Salad

I am trying to incorporate more fruits and vegetables in our diet and this is a tasty way to do that. This Mango Arugula salad also travels well if you pack the ingredients separately. Perfect for a picnic lunch at the park or on the beach!

The fresh ingredients in this simple salad make it a great way to celebrate the season too! Top it with a tasty vinaigrette dressing and you have the makings of a great side dish or meal.

For another dinner option, add some cooked skinless, boneless chicken pieces to make a wonderful Mango Arugula Chicken Salad. It is one of my go to lunches when I want something that is light but has some protein too.

Wonderfully satisfying and low in fat, it is a great choice for a meal. Warmer weather and summer dresses are coming soon and I think we all want to feel better and look better in the months ahead.

The following ingredients were used in this original recipe.

Arugula – this leafy green is a nice alternative to spinach. It is a bit lighter and has a little pepper flavor.

Mango – You will want a couple of ripe mangoes for this recipe

Cranberries – This is a great way to use up some of those leftover dried cranberries from the holidays.

Almonds – Sliced almonds are best. I prefer salted for this recipe.

Parmesan Cheese – One of my favorite cheeses that makes everything taste better!

tips to streamline recipes

  • Use bagged baby Arugula mix to save time.
  • You can even purchase the peeled and chopped mango, or you can peel and precut the mango ahead of time and use it for several dishes and smoothies.
  • Use pre-shredded Parmesan cheese.

This also makes a nice brunch salad. I love that the arugula is different than the usual lettuce and the sweet mango and cranberries offset it nicely! You will want to pin this one for later.
