Mad Fact

Even though the book was a huge success, "Don Quixote" didn’t generate any money for author Miguel de Cer­vantes Saave­dra. Also, no one knows what Cer­vantes looked like (no image has even been authenticated).

Chef's Inspiration

This salad is a little on the sweet side, boasting both mango and corn, but the avocado brings an unexpected richness that takes it to the next level. Then, BAM, in comes the Creamy Ginger Dressing which has fresh ginger to cut through the richness so its not as cloying (and its good for your digestion!).

MAD Story

One night while Don was at happy hour enjoying tapas and wine with friends, there were only two tiny bites of an avocado and a mango left on the plate. Being the bold man that he was, Don popped BOTH fruits into his mouth AT THE SAME TIME. “This is the most miraculous flavor combination I have ever experienced!” Don exclaimed. “The world MUST know.” And even though his friends thought Don was acting quite insane, he set out on his trusty donkey to spread the love that is the glorious combination of avocado and mango. Feeling adventurous, Don took it upon himself to add a few new flavors to the mix – Jack cheese, roasted corn, baby greens – which made the flavor profile even tastier. Don couldn’t travel very fast on his donkey, but in the next 20 years, he traveled about five miles, sampling his creation to anyone he could find. Even though Don only encountered 250 people on his 20 year, five-mile adventure, his concoction was indeed miraculous, so the recipe spread across the country, and into legend.
