Mango Mint Salad

Mango Mint Salad by Mom @ Whats for Dinner?My mom has been visiting me over the past few weeks. We both had planned on cooking and eating great food while she is here but the lure of sightseeing was too great. My mom did make this lovely Mango Mint Salad to go with the chicken curry I made a few nights ago.

Mango Mint Salad
Serves 6
1 large ripe mango
1/2 English cucumber
1/2 red onion
1 orange
1/2 lime
2 Tbs mint
1 Tbs coriander
1 Tbs chives
1/4 tsp mango powder (Amchoor Powder)
1/2 tsp ground coriander seed
1 tsp of ground cumin seed
Salt, Pepper and hot red pepper flakes

Peel and slice mango into long strips. Slice cucumber into strips. Finely slice the red onion into crescents. Zest the orange, peel and slice. Zest the lime and juice half. Chop the herbs. Mix everything and add the spices and salt and pepper.

cooling mango and cucumber for hot curry by Mom @ Whats for Dinner?I would have used tons more hot pepper, but my mom wanted to make something cooling to go with the spicy curry.


  1. Sightseeing vs. cooking??? Hmmm....No brainer...Enjoy your visit!!

  2. Looks Great! But ... nothing like that happened when I was there - had to suffer with grilled salmon, chips, and a pint!

  3. What a shame, you had to suffer with Grill salmon, chips, and a pint. Poor thing!!

  4. what? You let mom's food go on your food blog, and wouldn't let me put up some mashed potatoes? It's like you think I can't cook or something!
