And ya know.. the shrimp in this is totally uneccesary.
Just leave it out, put more mango in and have this for lunch or something.

4 cups of baby spinach, cleaned and with the tough lil stems removed (you can usually buy this in the prebagged salad area in any grocery story)
2 mangoes, peeled, chopped into lil squares.
1/4 chopped mint (VERY important. it has to be fresh mint. If it's *wild* fresh mint... keep in mind that it's stronger and tougher than something you'd buy in a store and adjust it accordingly)

Arrange the spinach on the plate.

Whisk together (all of these measurements are "about" ... I don't uh .. I don't tend to actually MEASURE)
3 tablespoons of orange juice, 2 tablespoons of lime juice, 1 tablespoon, 1 teaspoon of dijon mustard, 1 teaspoon of olive oil, dash of salt, pinch of crushed red pepper. then throw the mint, mangoes and shrimp in there and coat everything.
Then just put it over the spinach.

That's it.
It's really good. It sounds GROSS.. but it's really really good.
If I had more spinach, I'd be making a no shrimp version for lunch today.

Davey no like mango or mint though...

well,Dave... then I would suggest you don't make this.
You probably wouldn't like it.

Heh...it's probably a good thing you aren't in any recipe posting communities.
"Oh, but I don't like veal."
"Oh, but I don't like cantelope."
"hmm.. yeah ... but I don't like any of your ingredients." hehe

Actually I like lots of shit, just mango and mint I'm not fond of. that's why I mentioned it, cause I'm not picky, but those are things I don't like.
But I do like you!

Totally missed my point, there.

I put up a lil recipe.
You actually POST to say that you don't like the ingredients.

It would be like... I dunno.. Seeing someone I know talk about some music they just heard and me posting to say "that band uses a lot of snare drum. I don't like snare drum."

It's *almost* a non-sequitor.

No, YOU missed MY point.
I like you!
