Mango and Veggie Salad with Wasabi Salad Dressing

Lately have been busy with other stuff that I didn’t spend enough time on this recipe blog and those things on my January To-Do List. So last night, I decided to create this recipe at 8pm. It is real simple as I love to say. It has to be simple yet nutritious to be done at home by anyone, anything that required more works; let’s enjoy them at the vegetarian eateries. Maybe it is a little bit costly, but just takes that as the price for the manhour if we have to do it ourselves and we can relax and dine in a different ambience … Be a little compassionate and pamper ourselves once in a while by having a nice meal at the vegetarian eateries …

Back to this recipe, adding mango to the veggies salad gives a different taste – natural sweetness.! The amount of mango or carrot or cucumber to be used depends on individual preference. For the salad dressing, I added Wasabi! Sunny had left comments on my blog that avocado with wasabi is her favorites, I think. So, I happened to pass by the sushi counter at Cold Storage @ Bugis, so I brought 2 little pack of wasabi at 10 cents each. By adding wasabi to the salad cream, it gives a totally new flavour and it is nice, but you have to taste it before adding more wasabi, if not …. : )

Oh yeah, just to share this new piece of information from

How do you make mango shreds

Hi Nancy

It is the same way that we cut green mango shreds, when you google how to cut a mango, you may be able to find some video demonstrating it, it is easy to watch then reading the instruction.

What I did was, I used a fruit peeler to peel off the skin. Then, either I put the mango on the chopping board or on my hand,on one side, I use the knife to cut many lines, parallel to each one. Then, I slice across from top of the mango to the bottom. Repeatly until there is no more mango fresh on it.

Next I would do the other side. Sorry for such a messy instruction.

Cheers :)
