|Stuffed Pepper with Green Mango Salad|
The green mango salad, on the other hand, was easy peasy:
Green Mango Salad (a la Thai Express)
1/4 cup fresh lime juice
1/3 cup fish sauce
1/3 cup sugar (could easily replace regular sugar with agave or honey)
2 green mangos, peeled and julienned
2 large carrots, peeled and julienned
1 jalapeno - chopped finely - if you don't like too spicy, then take out the seeds and membrane first, otherwise keep and burn your mouth off!
handful each of cilantro, mint leaves and thai basil, washed and coarsly chopped
In a glass bowl, combine the lime juice, fish sauce and sugar until sugar is dissolved. Add the rest of the ingredients and stir. Leave at room temp for about 20minutes so that the flavours can "marry" then drain and discard the excess juice.
So this afternoon, as I wait for my pup to get out of surgery, I think I am going to try Lindsey's Coconut Mango muffins to cheer me up!!
