Carla Veliz’s Mango Mint Salad

San Antonio artist Carla Veliz sees a connection between her art and food.

“My art, like a crisp, flavorful salad, combines color, texture and visual delights to create a sensory experience,” she writes in “The Art Lovers’ Cookbook: San Antonio” (SRC Publishing, $24.95). “The vibrant hues presented in delicate swirls awaken the visual senses in much the same way that a refreshing, multi-textured salad arouses the palate.”

And so, this refreshing, multi-textured Mango Mint Salad is a sweet-savory reflection of her work.

Carla Veliz’s Mango Mint Salad

3 ripe mangoes
Juice of 2 limes
1 clove garlic, diced
1/4 cup agave nectar
1/4 cup shredded mint leaves

Peel and slice mangoes lengthwise.

Serve individually; plate 1/2 mango per guest.

Whisk lime juice, garlic and agave nectar in a bowl, drizzle over mango and sprinkle with shredded mist.

Makes 6 servings.
