Chicory, Quinoa and Mango Salad

Chicory, quinoa and mango salad • Chicory leaves are incredibly bitter, and it is this bitterness which makes them a wonderful digestive aid, it stimulates the digestive enzymes in your mouth, to break down your food.


With anti inflammatory properties as well as being a carminative Food, shown to reduce stress and anxiety • I have balanced the bitterness with a sweet mango and a citrus, chilli honey dressing • it’s delicious and can be assembled in minutes


1 head of red chicory

1 pouch of ready cooked mixed quinoa (red+white)

1 chopped fresh mango

3 spring onions


1/3 cup olive oil

Juice of half a lemon

1 tbsp Apple cider vinegar

1 tbsp raw honey

A few drops of Worcestershire sauce

Pinch of chilli flakes



Mix all your salad ingredients together, add the dressing and serve immediately • to make this more substantial you could add a few steamed broccoli florets or some toasted pumpkins seeds for extra crunch • what I love about chicory is it retains its crunch really well in winter salads
