What Goes with Mango?
Whenever a store has mangoes on sale, I snap them up. I hate that I went through most of my life never knowing what a mango tasted like. I grew up when there were 3 television channels and our big excursions into food from other cultures was the Chef Boyardee Chow Mein.
Now, there is cilantro, mangoes, harissa paste, lemongrass....and so much more. Things I never even knew existed.
Anyway back to my haul of mangoes. I was trying to decide what to do with them, when I turned to the books that I turn to every time I'm looking for ideas: The Flavor Bible and The Vegetarian Flavor Bible. These books are not recipe books, rather they tell you what goes with what.
Glancing through the section on mangoes, I saw that mangoes go with beans, chiles, cilantro, coconut, ginger, lime, mint, onions, papayas and more, but I zeroed in on lime and mint. I had limes in my fridge and mint in my garden, so it was an easy choice.

What to Serve with Mango Salad.
At first I wasn't going to post this salad. I mean it has only 3 ingredients. You know though that I am all about simple, especially when the flavors shine.
I am always looking for a salad to go with Southeast Asian cuisines and this one is perfect. It would be so good with Slow Cooker Thai Curried Noodles, Spicy Thai Pork Fried Rice or Thai Beef Cabbage Wraps.
