I used the sunny day to cook outdoors. From the top of Bjørndalsfjellet (362 m a.s.l.), nearby Sandnes (Norway) there is a beautiful view of the four corners of the world. Quick salad with a refreshing mango hit the spot! I used ready-made "taco boats" for serving. Enjoy your meal!


(four portions)
  • 1/2 cup quinoa (dry)
  • 2 mangoes
  • 2 avocados
  • 100 g of spinach
  • a bunch of cilantro or parsley
  • 50 g of a mixture of roasted and salted nuts


  • 3 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons of lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon of maple syrup
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • salt and pepper
  • a pinch of oregano


  1. Cook quinoa in salted water. Drain and cool.
  2. Meanwhile, dice the avocado and mango.
  3. Mix the dressing with the ingredients above.
  4. Put all the ingredients into a large bowl.
  5. Pour the dressing over it and mix it gently.
  6. Serve the salad in "taco boats".

The place is just as important as the meal.

Thanks to my sons, Max and Jeremy, for their help with camera.
