Summer Salads ~ Spicy Mango Salad

With an abundant supply of mangoes at home, I find myself making a lot of salads with ripe mangoes. It was fruit chaat the other day and today I made a simple mango salad – ripe mango chunks, finely chopped onions and fresh coriander, tossed together in a dressing of lime-red chilli flakes-olive oil.

I served it chilled so that the flavors mingle well. An explosion of intense fresh flavors, both sweet and hot.

    Looks great, This is pretty much like Mango Salsa if you add a little bit of white vinegar and cilantro.
    We got our first ever Indian mangoes in our local stores this weekend.

    Wow! Ripe mango salad. You always surpise us with the most innovative recipes. Going to try it immediately. In fact, right now, the favourite are mango recipes – mango sandesh, raw mango sherbet – and still another favourite is a spicy pulav enhanced with ripe mango slices. This recipe is a great addition to the mango list. Keep up the great posts.

    Hi Sailu,
    I noticed that you site has a pin button and at the same time you have a copyright on your photos. Is it OK to pin your recipes? I am going to try this mango salad tonight and if I like it I would like to pin it to my “Salad” board if that is OK. seh
