Tips and Suggestions

For this recipe, you want to buy mangoes that are just ripe but still have firm flesh. This will give you sweet and tangy flavour. Green mangoes from Thailand will do this job perfectly well. If you prefer a sweeter taste, go for India's esteemed Alphonso mangoes when in season.


1. For the chilli vinaigrette: mix all the ingredients together and season to taste with salt.

2. For the salad: mix all the ingredients in bowl and dress with 2-3 tbsp of the vinaigrette. Toss well.

3. Divide the salad between four chilled serving dishes. Serve the remaining dressing on the side.
