My husband thinks I’m crazy, but then again… I’m not the one who married me =) He just cannot fathom how I absolutely LOVE unripe mangoes. I guess I grew up this way, picking unripe mangoes… barefoot in my grandpa’s backyard back on that little island called Lombok in Indonesia.
So, what to do when it’s not mango season and you’re just dying for mangoes? or on a hot summer day when you just want to cool off? (well, that just seems so far away from now, doesn’t it?) – you make Honey Mango Salad!
My mom introduced me to this recipe – it’s SUPER simple. All you need to do is julienne 1 unripe mangoes, throw in a dollop of honey (i.e. about a tablespoon), a few dashes of SALT (yes, you’re reading correctly), and mix all together. Optionally, throw in some Chile Seasoning or whatever Chili Powder you have for a kick.
Not the prettiest picture I know – but I promise you it’s delicious.
