Mango and Tomato Salad

2 tomatoes, cut into &frac12 cm slices   240 g
2 mangoes, ripe , diced   600 g
3 tbsp olive oil   45 mL
1 tsp balsamic vinegar   5 mL
3/4 tsp paprika   2 g
2 tbsp Italian parsley, fresh [optional]   10 g
1 pinch salt [optional]   0.1 g


  1. Cut the tomatoes into slices approximately ½ cm thick and arrange them on a flat dish. Sprinkle with salt. Let stand for 15 min to allow excess liquids to drain off. Transfer to a serving plate or to individual plates.
  2. Cut the mangoes in half, without peeling them, slicing near the large oval pit. Using a knife, make check pattern incisions (about 1 cm wide) in the flesh without cutting through the skin. Gently press the scored halves to turn them inside out and then cut off the cubes of fruit from the peel. Trim the rest of the fruit off the pit. Place the mango pieces in the centre of the plates.
  3. In a small bowl, whisk together the oil, vinegar, paprika, and salt until it is emulsified. Pour over the tomatoes and mangoes. Garnish with fresh parsley leaves on top (optional) then serve.
