Alphanso mangoes with herbs !! ~ Mango Mania

When my daughter made this salad , for her school project,she used normal mango. We liked it but being an Indian, I always love to have Indian touches in other meal and I wanted to use Alphonso Mangoes in there..I waited more than 5 months for the Alphonso mangoes.  Now they are in my home, and the Aroma of this mangoes all over the house!!  Kids are enjoying them, me too.....and today first thing first I made this salad..Recipe needed ripe but firm mango...If I describe this salad I would say yes it is unusual combination, sweet fruit with crunchy vegetables in a chilli-spiced dressing...but I can say this is the most attractive and appetising salad I ever had in years!!!! Serve it as part of an Al fresco meal in the summer...well I can't, it's raining here..:-((

You will need:-

  • 1 red onion, thinly sliced and separated into half-rings
  • 1 ripe but firm Alphonso mango(use any)
  • 1 kiwi fruit, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cucumber, thinly sliced
Chilli and herb dressing:-

  • 1 fresh red chilli, seeded and finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp sunflower oil
  • 1 tbsp lime juice
  • 1 tsp clear honey
  • 2 tbsp chopped fresh coriander and mint
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Method:-

Combine all the dressing ingredients in a screw-top jar.  Shake well to blend.  Put the onion in a shallow dish, pour over the dressing and leave to marinate for 30 minutes.  Halve the mango lenghtways, cutting down round each side of the stone.  Peel of the skin, then cut the flesh into small slices and place in a bowl. Add the kiwi and cucumber.  Tip the marinated onion into the bowl together with all the dressing and fold together gently.Ready to serve..Enjoy...actually right now I'm relishing this salad, couldn't wait to post...do try it out and let me know...
