Prep and cook the sausages
- Pat the sausages dry with a paper towel; prick in a few places with a fork, if desired.
In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 to 2 tablespoons oil until hot but not smoking. Add the sausages and cook, turning occasionally, until browned and cooked through,10 to 12 minutes. Transfer to a cutting board to rest for 5 minutes, then cut on the diagonal into ¼-inch-thick slices. While the sausages are cooking and resting, prepare the salad.
Prep the salad ingredients
- Trim the ends from the mango; cut away the peel, then cut the flesh away from the pit into halves. Thinly slice the halves crosswise.
- Remove the stem, ribs, and seeds from the bell pepper; cut the pepper into ¼-inch-wide strips.
- Strip the parsley leaves from the stems; coarsely chop the leaves. Set aside half for garnish.

In a large bowl, toss together the mango, bell pepper, mixed greens, carrots, cabbage, poppy seeds, red pepper vinaigrette, and half the parsley. Season to taste with salt and pepper and sugar (from your pantry), if desired.
