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
Health Promotion Board (HPB) - A Vegetarian’s Guide to Eating Right Share with ALL your friends (veg*n and non-veg*n)….

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 :)
