crab and mango salad with lime

This salad is my go-to when I want something less carby and light, zingy and refreshing. It’s pretty effortless and there no cooking involved. It’s also my store cupboard supermarket staple and takes minutes to make. It was a big hit when I posted it on Instagram so I’ve written it up for the blog.

It is also a perfect starter for a dinner party, just bear in mind that it would serve two as a starter and multiply the ingredients accordingly. I eat the whole bowl to myself for dinner because it’s super healthy and a delicious combo.


Serves 1.


1 tin of drained crab meat
1 ripe mango
1 lime (zest and juice)
1/4 to 1/2 red chilli depending on how hot you like it
a sprig of fresh coriander finely chopped with the stalks



Zest and juice the lime and set aside. Cube the mango into small cubes and place in a bowl. Very finely dice the half chilli and gently mix with the mango. Place the crab meat on top, then the sprinkle with the coriander and lime juice and zest.

Job done!
