Asian

Vietnamese Mango Salad

by Aida Azizuddin on Fri, December 17, 2010

A really fresh salad with great flavour balance. The Vietnamese version has more herbaceous leaves mixed in than their Thai neighbours. Mix in yellow and green mangoes for more colour.

Put in extra nuts!

Serves 3 - 4 people

Tangy, sweet and a little pungent- this is a salad that has everything for your tastebuds
