Venison and Mango Salad

Simple, delicious and low fat. We slightly over cooked the venison, the meat should be pink if done correctly. Serves 2 as a main course.

400 grams of venison cut into thick slices
The juice of a lime
1 tablespoon of honey
5 tablespoons of olive oil
1 clove of garlic, crushed

2 tablespoons of balsamic vinegar
3 tablespoons of raspberry vinegar
4 tablespoons of olive oil
4 tablespoons of pumpkin seed oil (obviously this will be almost impossible to find so just substitute more olive oil like we did)
The juice of a large orange
Salt & pepper

1 mango, finely sliced or a tin of mango slices
2 tablespoons of balsamic vinegar
2 large handfuls of baby spinach, rocket, salad greens etc
Salt & pepper
t tablespoons of toasted pinenuts
2 tablespoons of pumpkin seeds

Combine the marinade ingredients together, add venison, coat the meat and set aside.
Combine the dressing ingredients. Briefly cook the venison in a frying pan over a high heat until cooked but still pink. Heat the mangos in a pan and add the balsamic vinegar and salt & pepper, reduce slightly.
Place the salad greens on a plate, top with the venison and mango slices and drizzle over the dressing. Sprinkle with the pinenuts and pumkin seeds.

Hi, If you are after Pumpkin Seed Oil and pumpkin seeds there is a company here in Australia that I get it from. Their website is www.pumpkinseed.net.au
Not sure how much postage to NZ would be.
I think it is a great oil for salads.
