Termite Salad with Mango-Orange Vinaigrette

Makes 4 Servings

This salad balances the earthy and nutty addition of high-protein insects with a bright tropical citrus vinaigrette.

Termite Salad with Mango-Orange Vinaigrette
  • 2 1/2 grams Termites (or Black Ants)
  • Salad Greens
  • Microgreens
  • Mango Orange Vinaigrette:
  • 2 tbsp Cameroon Mango Vinegar
  • 4 tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
  • 1/2 tsp Dijon Mustard
  • 1/2 tsp Brown Sugar
  • 1 tbsp Orange Juice
  • 1/4 tsp Orange Zest
  • Salt & Freshly Ground Pepper



Mix up the vinaigrette by adding all the ingredients to a jar with a tightly-fitting lid. Shake like the dickens until well incorporated.


Pour over the greens and microgreens in a bowl large enough to toss them, then toss to coat.

Mound onto four plates, then top the salad with a generous scatter of termites or black ants.
