Scallop Mango salad

Hubby and I want to start eating more salads as entrees. I saw this in a recent copy of Cooking Light and thought we’d give it a try. Neither of us had ever cooked with sea scallops before, but they are really easy to cook.

This was a great salad but needed a little something more. Perhaps if we had mango chutney that would have provided what was missing (we used a sliced mango instead). Also, this salad will not keep well, so next time we’ll make 1/2 the recipe for just the 2 of us.

Caribbean Grilled Scallop Salad (from Cooking Light) – Serves 412 large sea scallops (about 1 1/2 pounds)
2 tsp fish rub, divided
cooking spray
5 (1/2 inch) slices fresh pineapple
4 cups gourmet salad greens or mixed salad greens
4 cups torn Boston lettuce (about 2 small heads)
1/3 cup diced peeled avocado
2 Tbsp mango chutney – we didn’t have any chutney, so we just diced a mango
2 Tbsp fresh lime juice
2 tsp olive oil

Prepare grill to high heat.

Pat scallops dry with a paper towel. Sprinkle 1 1/2 tsp fish rub evenly over scallops. Coat scallops with cooking spray. Place scallops on grill rack; grill 3 minutes on each side or until done.

Remove scallops. Add pineapple to grill rack; grill 2 minutes on each side. Remove pineapple from grill; chop pineapple.

Combine salad greens, lettuce, pineapple, and avocado in a large bowl.

Chop large pieces of chutney. Combine chutney, lime juice, olive oil, and remaining 1/2 tsp fish rub in a small bowl. Add dressing to salad, and toss well. Place 1 1/2 cups salad into each of 4 bowls. Arrange 3 scallops over each salad.

    Think these are sweet enough to try with sour cherries? I am one of those weirdos who loves the tart ones and dislikes the sweet ones. But otherwise the bars look so yum. If not maybe blueberries….

      You could definitely make this with sour cherries. Especially if you like the tartness!
