2-serving instructions (4-serving modifications in red)

Wash produce before use


Cook the sausages

  • Pat the sausages dry with a paper towel; prick in a few places with a fork.
In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 tablespoon [2 TBL] oil until hot but not smoking. Add the sausages and cook, turning once, until browned and cooked through, 5 to 6 minutes per side. Transfer to a cutting board to rest for 5 minutes, then cut on the diagonal into ¼-inch-thick slices.
While the sausages cook and rest, 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. Divide into two equal portions, one for the salad and one for garnish.


Toss the salad

In a large bowl, toss together the mango, bell pepper, carrots, cabbage, mixed greens, poppy seeds, half the parsley, and half the red pepper vinaigrette (set aside the remaining vinaigrette for serving). Season to taste with salt and pepper.


Transfer the sausages and salad to individual plates and garnish with the remaining parsley. Serve the remaining vinaigrette on the side.
