Another batch of 'Mango medley'- a salad.

We have made this in our kitchen many a times this summer.
All of us relish this. But it goes hands down as a favorite with 'G' and I.
Very tropical and tangy. And cool as required for summer.

For the salad:
1 mango finely chopped
1 capsicum ( green/red bell pepper) finely chopped
1 carrot grated
1/4 cup minced fresh mint

Ps: The mango need be a half ripe one. A little sweet with a whole lot of tangy.

For the dressing:
3 tbspn orange juice
3 tbspn lime juice
2 tsp sugar
1/4 tspn chili sauceSalt to taste

In a salad bowl mix all the chopped mango, carrot, pepper and mint.
Combine all the dressing together and toss with the salad.

Refrigerate and serve cold.

The best part I love is although we always make this fresh and finish it at one meal, it would work equally wonderful even if made ahead and refrigerated a day in advance.

My maternal grandma who taught me never to eat mangoes ( unripe ones) when having a cold would have pursed her lips in disapproval at a still sneezing Hegde clan eating a cold salad!
But well that thing we said about the hay and the sun n mint and salads.... Well!
Soon there won't be good mangoes OR fresh mint!
So Bon appetite.
