Well this recipe is certainly something. I tried making something super healthy for a change. Just because we all need our vitamins, don’t we. I love healthy food I just mostly prefer the unhealthy food, which I know is bad for me. Luckily this salad is so light and full of flavor, and the best part is no regrets afterwards about eating to many calories! Not saying, I count my calories, I never do, but my mom is worried about hers and mine! So to make her happy I made this refreshing colorful salad.
This salad smells amazing as you make it. By the time you plate it up your diners will be pounding the table!
Ingredients for the Dressing: 1 tsp Garlic oil, 2 tbsp Sesame oil. 1 tsp Dark Soya Sauce, 1/2 tsp Fish Sauce, 1 tsp Palm Sugar, 1/2 a Lime Juice and Zest
Ingredients Shredded Asian Salad: 1 Mango, 1 large Carrot Cup of Bean Sprouts, a hand of almonds or peanuts , 1/3 cup Herbs (Dill, Coriander, Parsley, Mint – but add in what you have), 1/4 cup Spring Onions, 1/2 Red Chilli, Small piece of ginger
Take a large bowl and place the Bean Sprouts inside. Peel the outside of the Mango and Carrots, then use a Julienne Peeler to prep the both, (if your mango is too soft like mine was, just cube it). Add to the Bean Sprouts bowl. Cut a Chilli lengthways in half and remove the seeds. Finley slice and add to the bowl. Finely chop the Herbs together. Then do the same to the Peanuts.
Make the Dressing in a separate bowl by mixing all the ingredients together. Pour the dressing over the salad and mix thoroughly with tongs. Add the herbs and mix again.
