It really is very beautiful to look at, not to mention eat! Perfect with Indonesian and Thai dishes.
- Ready In:
- 2 ripe mangoes
- 1⁄4 red onion, thinly sliced
- 1⁄2 red bell pepper, julienned
- 1 lime, juice of
- lime zest (optional)
- fresh cilantro
- I find the easiest way to cut up mango for this is to cut off as much as you can, slicing along the side of the pit.
- You can tell what way the pit grows by its shape.
- Score the mango halves lengthways, then crossways, into 3/4 inch cubes, going through to the skin, but not through it.
- Turn the mango halves inside out and slice off the cubes.
- Toss with remaining ingredients.
- Goes well with any Thai or Indonesian dish.
- Like Indonesian Ginger Chicken!

I'll Admit it, it took me two tries to get this right! And I think where I went wrong was my choice of ingredients I used. The first time I tried this, I used ingredients that I bought from a shop near my locality. Needless to say I wasn't happy, but the second time I tried this - I ordered from www.baliorganic.id, an organic vegetable delivery service in Bali that my friend recommended! And it made a world of a difference! Making high great food comes after getting hands on the right vegetables and produce! You guys must must check them out! I turned my recipe around.
I had this alongside Thai coconut soup (Tom Kha Gai) and brown rice noodles with Thai peanut sauce. It was paired delightfully, and was a wonderful, fresh dish. I never would have considered sweet mango with other ingredients such as what it called for, but I will guaranteed be making this again and again.
