Mango Salad

Mango Salad – a healthy, heart warming and vibrant mango salad with refreshing cucumbers, crunchy red onions and bell peppers. The thinly sliced mangoes, cucumbers, red onions and bell peppers are tossed and infused with a lime vinaigrette dressing.

I have chosen a partially ripened mango (red and green variety) for this salad. A partially ripened mango will add some tanginess, crunch and texture to the salad.

Ingredients:

For the salad:

Mango (Partially ripened)1 medium size
Cucumber (thinly sliced)1/4 th cup
Red onion (thinly sliced)1/4 th cup
Red bell pepper (thinly sliced)1/4 th cup
Cilantro / Coriander leaves few
Saltto taste

For the salad dressing:

Olive oil2 to 3 tablespoon
White vinegar2 teaspoon
Lime juice3 to 4 teaspoon
Black pepper (crushed)1/4 th teaspoon
Crushed chilli (optional)1/4 th teaspoon

Instructions:

  • Peel the skin of the mango and thinly slice the mango lengthwise. Slice the cucumber, red onion and red bell pepper lengthwise and place it a salad bowl. Finely chop the coriander leaves and add it to the bowl. Add salt and mix well.
  • For salad dressing – Take a jar that has tightly fitted lid. Add all the ingredients listed under ‘for salad dressing’ – olive oil, vinegar, lime juice, black pepper and crushed chilli. Close the jar with the lid tightly and shake it well.
  • Add the salad dressing to the bowl just before serving.

Notes:

  • Instead of partially ripened mango, you can substitute with raw mangoes if you wish.
