 Hits: 1228 Title: Thai Green Mango Salad 10/24/2012
raymond1234


2 firm unripe mangoes (mangoes may be green or red-orange in color)
1/4 cup dry shredded unsweetend coconut (the kind you use for baking)
2 cups bean sprouts
1/2 cup chopped fresh coriander
3-4 spring onions, sliced
handful of peanuts or cashews, left whole or roughly chopped
1/3 cup fresh basil
Optional: 1 cup cooked chicken or shrimp, or fried tofu if vegetarian/vegan (cut into small cubes)
Optional: 1 fresh-cut red chili
SALAD DRESSING:
3 Tbsp. fish sauce, OR 4 Tbsp.soy sauce if vegetarian/vegan 1/4 cup freshly-squeezed lime juice
2 Tbsp. brown sugar, or more to taste
1-2 tsp. Thai chili sauce, OR substitute 1/3 to 1/2 tsp. dried crushed chili (chili flakes)




1   Place coconut in a frying pan or wok (no oil required). "Dry-fry" the coconut as if you were stir-frying it 2-3 minutes over medium heat, or until it turns a light golden-brown and is fragrant. Transfer to a bowl to cool.

2   Mix together all the salad dressing ingredients in a bowl or cup. The dressing should be a mingling of sweet, sour, spicy and salty, but more sweet than sour. Set aside.

3    Using a sharp pairing knife, peel skin from mangoes. The flesh of the mango should be firm and light yellow-orange (note: the photo above was taken in direct sunlight and is brighter than usual).

 4   Using a medium to large-size grater (the kind you would use for cabbage salad), grate the flesh of the mangoes into a mixing bowl. Keep in mind there is a large flat stone at the mangos center.

  5  Add the bean sprouts, coriander, spring onions, cooked chicken, shrimp or tofu (if using), the fresh-cut chili, plus half the toasted coconut. Toss well to combine.

 6   Add the dressing and toss again. Do a taste-test. Add more fish sauce or soy sauce instead of salt. If you prefer it sweeter, add a little more sugar (honey works too). If you prefer more spice, add more chili sauce. If too salty or sweet, add more lime juice.

 7 Place on a serving platter. Sprinkle the nuts over top plus the basil and remaining toasted coconut. Enjoy!
