MANGO SALAD





Try my very simple mango salad recipe. Serve it with your favorite tofu or gluten dish. While summer is still here and it is still mango season, let's take advantage of this wonderful tropical fruit...


Mango is known as the 'king of the fruits' because of its delicious flavor-- really nothing in the world like it!  I find its fragrance, taste, attractive color and health promoting qualities something really unique. It is also very rich in vitamins and minerals.

Mango has been known in India since very early times. It is referred to in Sanskrit literature as 'amra' and has been cultivated by man for over 5,000 years.

The English word 'mango' originated from the Tamil word 'mangai'. Tamil is the longest living language which originated from Sanskrit.

Ingredients:

2 pcs ripe mangoes (piko, kinalabaw or indian mango variety)
5-6 pcs ripe tomatoes (chopped).
1/4 c chopped leeks or spring onions
lettuce

Dressing:
2 Tbsp pinakurat (coconut palm vinegar) or any vinegar
2 Tbsp sugar
salt, pepper

Procedure:
1. Peel mangoes. Scoop out flesh. Set aside.
2. In a mixing bowl, combine together mango pieces, chopped
    tomatoes, chopped leeks or spring onions, salt and pepper. Pour
    dressing. Serve.
