Food and Drink: Thai Mango Salad


To complete my delicious Thai dinner, I made a quick and easy Mango Salad. The combination of sweet and spicy flavours, the contrast in textures between the soft mangoes, crunchy peppers and peanuts, is a perfect way to cleanse the palate after such a rich and flavourful meal.

You'll need:

For the salad:

  • 2 mangoes, peeled and julienned
  • 1 red bell pepper, julienned
  • 1/2 red onion, julienned
  • 1 tablespoon cilantro, chopped
  • 3 tablespoons peanuts, roughly chopped

For the vinaigrette:
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1/2 tablespoon sesame seed oil
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • 1 teaspoon lime zest
  • 1 tablespoon soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon Sriracha
  • 1 teaspoon brown sugar

Soak the onion in cold water for 15 minutes.

Whisk all ingredients for the vinaigrette together and set aside. 

Assemble the salad ingredients, dress with the vinaigrette and top with the crushed peanuts and cilantro. Serve chilled.
