Mango & Toasted Sesame Seed Salad
This is a sophisticated salad that is ideal for as a light starter or side dish with meat or fish. It needs to be made into individual portions and plated but all the preparation of the ingredients and dressing can be made in advance.
The best way to toast sesame seeds is to place them on an oven tray at 200 C/400F for about 10 minutes. Keep an eye on them as you do not want them to burn!
