Crystal’s Green Mango Salad


Salad mixed with dressing and ready to be eaten!

Healthy salad! A new twist to the common vegetarian Green Mango salad. You can add pine nut or some crispy stuff such as Yu Sheng Bok Chui Biscuit, if desired. See, we don’t have to stick to the non-vegetarian Thai Mango Salad, we can let our imagination run wild and come up with different ideas to make our vegetarian dishes exciting and interesting. Be a pioneer and dare to be different.

This salad can be served with Vegetarian Chicken Rice. You can make this salad one day in advance by mixing the dressing with green mango and carrot. Sprinkle peanut powder or grounded peanut, sesame and chilli flake prior to serving. Replace with freshly chopped chilli if dried chilli flake is unavailable or omit it.

Dressing
° 1 tablespoon plum sauce
° 1 tablespoons (2-3 limes) freshly squeezed kalamansi lime juice
