Strawberry, Mango, and Wax Bean Salad With Chile Vinaigrette

Strawberry, Mango, and Wax Bean Salad With Chile Vinaigrette


  • Kosher salt
  • 2 dried guajillo or New Mexico chiles
  • 12 ounces wax beans, trimmed
  • 8 ounces strawberries
  • 1 honey mango
  • Zest and juice of 1 lime
  • 1 tablespoon white balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons pepitas, toasted


  1. Bring a large saucepan of salted water to a boil. Put the chiles in a bowl that fits them snugly and pour enough of the boiling water over them to cover. Weigh down the chiles with a plate and soak until softened, about 20 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, add the beans to the boiling water. Cook until crisp-tender, 4 to 5 minutes. Drain, immediately, rinse under cold water until cool, and drain again. Hull and cut the strawberries into wedges. Peel, pit, and cut the mango into thin slices.
  3. Drain the chiles and discard the stems. Cut in quarters lengthwise, then thinly slice crosswise. Transfer to a large bowl and stir in the lime zest and juice, vinegar, and oil. Season with salt.
  4. Add the beans, strawberries, and mango and fold until well-coated. Season with salt. Top with pepitas.
