Because in food I trust. In all forms and shapes. 

Mango sauce salad

Mango sauce salad

I think that mango is an underestimated fruit, at least in Latvia. We eat it as a fruit, sometimes in cakes or desserts, but rarely as something to go with meat, cheese or other savoury things. When my partner asked me to make something for Easter, I immediately thought of mango – that yellow color just suits Easter so much. But, instead of going for something sweet again, I went for salad. One sauce, one base, three variations. If it is a party, I like to make all three variations – so that everybody is happy.

Ingredients

50 ml tangerine or lime juice
270 g peeled, sweet mango, in pieces*
