Strawberry Mango Tossed Salad

I have been making this salad, for several years, with different variations.  I believe, I originally go the recipe from one of Susie Fishbein cookbooks.  My daughter-in-law made it first and I loved it.   She had mangoes and strawberries as the fruit, in this tossed salad.  Usually, I use these, also but if I find, I have no mango, I use mandarin oranges or another berry.

This is refreshing salad, great for hot summer days and nights.  I would like to try grapes or watermelon, in this salad. 
Strawberry Mango Tossed Salad


  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 2 tablespoons cider vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1/2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon sweet paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground mustard
  • 1 teaspoon fine diced onion
  • Dash salt
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 4 cups torn mixed salad greens  (romaine)
  • 2 cups sliced fresh strawberries
  • 1 mango sliced
  • a avocado, cut up
  • 1 medium red onion, sliced
  • 1/3 cup walnuts


  • Combine, in a medium bowl, sugar, vinegar, honey, lemon juice, paprika, mustard, and onion. 
  • Microwave, uncovered, on high for 1-2 minutes.  Stir until sugar is dissolved.
  • Add the oil to other ingredients. Cover and refrigerate until serving.
  • In a salad bowl, combine the greens, strawberries, avocado, mango, onion, and walnuts. Sprinkle dressing onto the greens and  toss to coat.
