Thai? Mango Salad

Although this easy fruit salad is influenced by a Thai recipe (deconstructed for ease), I am not sure if it could be classified as one. Missing the fresh chilli and chopped peanuts for something with less kick & crunch. I’ve also made this including fresh strawberries & they do add a nice sweetness to the overall salad or relish?

Thai? Mango Salad



1 green mango

2 shallots

juice of 1 lemon

2 tablespoon fish sauce

1 1/2 tablespoon (about 4 teaspoons) sugar

1 tablespoon sweet chilli sauce

Sweet basil leaves


  • Peel the skin off the mango
  • Grate the mango into thin noodles. Mind those fingers!
  • Slice the shallots as thin as you are able to, break it up & add to the mango noodles
  • Add the lemon juice, fish sauce, sugar & chilli sauce to the mango noodles & shallots. Mix it up.
  • Cover with cling wrap & chill.
  • Add shredded sweet basil leaves and/or chopped peanuts just before serving.

You can also add cooked rice vermicelli and/or fresh quartered strawberries.
