Tangy green mango salad

This one is a salad I make ever so often…it came into existence one afternoon when I had mum over for a simple lunch and hurriedly wanted to add a refreshing salad for a hot summer afternoon and has become well liked by family and friends alike :))
One of the things about being a foodie is to read up about chefs and learn about various cuisines.When you get an opportunity to show a celebrity chef around your city,it’s an exciting experience,for sure ! Karen Anand,I discovered is more than a foodie,a famous chef etc…she is also with all her successes a very grounded and warm human being,eager to learn in a different environment and see what best she can get out of that study ! The ‘know it all’ attitude is non-existant which made it very easy for my family and friends to interact with her and want to be a part of her idea for a farmer’s market !Showing her around the city is one thing but having her over for a meal did unnerve me a bit.Then good sense prevailed,a true foodie is looking for one thing,clean well prepared food that tastes good…to a world traveller such as her,typical¬† family favourites,I decided were the way to go…so we started with a tangy mango salad with green mangoes from my tree,refreshing for this time of year,I’m sure you will like it too !
