Mmmm, mango salad

26 Jun
The house got a good once-over today (boy did the bathroom need it!) as
we had some friends over for dinner.  A couple of them are
vegetarian and I thought it would be a great time to use some of the
mangoes that are taking up rather a lot of space in our fridge right
now.  (I still had 3 left from the first case when Michael bought
another one, so we do have quite a few!)

I’ve had mango salads before, but haven’t always been very fond of
them, except for one that I tried at Marusia’s house a few months
ago.  I’d been bugging her for the recipe, but unfortunately she
was out of town for the past few days so I wasn’t able to get it from
her in time for tonight’s dinner.  So I used my own gumption, as
L.M. Montgomery would say, and made up the ingredients and fused a
couple of Internet recipes together for the dressing.  It turned
out pretty well, if I do say so myself.  Michael made some
wonderful shish-kebabs and we had rice and pitas and tzatziki to round
everything out.

Here’s a rough recipe for the mango salad for anyone wanting to try
it.  It’s a beautiful-looking salad and makes a nice centrepiece
on a summer supper table!

FAWN’S IMPROV MANGO SALAD
Julienned red, orange, and green pepper (about a quarter of each)
2 ripe mangoes, also julienned
1/4 cup finely diced red onion
1 or 2 tbsp chopped fresh mint

Dressing
3/4 cup rice vinegar
2 or 3 tbsp lime juice
1 or 2 tbsp fish sauce
1/2 tbsp chili sauce
1 tbps olive oil
dash of salt and pepper

Enjoy!
