Mango Salad is the perfect compliment to a Fresh Pad Thai. I like to use slightly firm mangos in this salad but my kids love the ripe sweeter ones.
- 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
- grated zest of one lime
- 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice (approximately one large juicy lime)
- 2 teaspoons fish sauce
- 2 teaspoons sweet thai chili sauce
- 2 firm mangos
- 1 sweet red pepper
- 1/4 cup loosely packed fresh mint
In your salad bowl or container combine the dressing of olive oil, lime zest, lime juice, fish sauce and sweet thai chili sauce.
Peel and thinly slice the mangos, julienne the red pepper and thinly slice your mint.
To your salad bowl add mangos, peppers and sprinkle mint on top. Toss just before dinner or up to 4 hours ahead. Store in the refrigerator until serving.
