Arugula and Mango Salad with White Chocolate and Sriracha Vinaigrette with Habenero Pecorino
You know that old game telephone where you whisper jack sprat ate no fat in your friend's ear and she says bacon fat is not bad to her friend and then when it comes back to you the phrase is turkey bacon is evil.
Well, that is how blog recipes are. You read one recipe and tweak it. Recently, I read a crazy recipe that involved white chocolate in salad dressing at cook eat FRET that she got from The Culinary Sherpas (love that name). The promised butteriness of the dressing was there.
However, unlike ceF, i was not pairing this with luscious duck, so I wanted to make a meal of this salad. I added adzuki sauteed with coriander, diced onion, diced carrot, chili shrimp, and habenero pecorino. This crazy salad was delcious paired with a beer. I hope both parties don't mind my bastardization.
