Thai Green mango salad

Generally we don't have lot of recipes for green mango. This salad is mixture of different flavors. Green mango lovers will eat it in any form but will love this salad. It tastes very good. I found this recipe from here. I made slight variations in the original recipe. The wild mango originated in the foothills of the Himalayas of India and Burma. Mangoes contain enzyme similar to papain in papayas, a soothing digestive aid. It has lot of enzymes which helps to stimulating metabolism and cleansing the intestinal tract. This is low in protein and high in fiber. If you would like to know more about mango click here.This is my entry for IAVW-Thai event hosted by Priya and Vaishali.


Green Mango - 1 cup, grated
Spring onion - 1/2cup, chopped
Bean sprouts - 1 cup
Cilantro - 4 tbsp, chopped
Grated coconut- 4 tbsp, dry fried
Pea nuts/Cashew nuts - 4 tbsp/per taste

For Dressing:

Soy sauce - 2 tbsp
Fresh lemon juice - 1 tbsp
Brown sugar - 2 tbsp *
Chili flakes - 1/2 tbsp *


In a large bowl place the grated green mango and add all the ingredients except 2 tbsp of coconut powder and 2 tbsp of the nut of your choice. Toss well and garnish with remaining coconut powder and the nuts. If you like the crunchy nuts in the salad, add them before serving.
