    Mango fonio salad

    Juice of 2 lemons
    1 teaspoon salt
    1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
    1 cup olive oil
    2 cups cooked fonio or quinoa
    1 bunch parsley, leaves finely chopped
    1 bunch mint, leaves finely chopped
    1 ripe mango, peeled, pitted, and diced
    1/2 red onion, finely chopped
    1 cup red and yellow grape tomatoes, halved
    1 small cucumber, seeded and diced
    1/2 cup Spiced Cashews (optional)

    In a small bowl, combine the lemon juice with the salt and pepper. Slowly pour in the oil, whisking to emulsify. Place the fonio in a large bowl and add the parsley, mint, mango, onion, tomatoes, and cucumber. Toss well and generously fold in the vinaigrette to taste. (You may have some left over.) Top with the spiced cashews (if using) and serve immediately.
