Mango Salad

This is a super easy salad and a real favourite among people from all ages (well at least in my family who are all mango crazy). Its the perfect companion to a Maldivian lunch. Hope you enjoy it as much as I do!


1 Semi ripe mango

1 small onion, thinly sliced

2 green chilies, chopped finely

1 tsp lime juice

pinch of salt

1 tsp pepper


Peel the mango and boil in a pot of water. Once the mango is a little soft, take it out and let it cool. Next, grate the mango or alternatively you can cut it into small pieces. In a separate dish, add the sliced onions, green chilies, salt, lime juice and pepper and mix well. Add the mango pieces and combine well. Enjoy!

There are some variations to this dish which goes well. I suggest you experiment these variations and find your favourite. Sometimes I use raw mangoes which has a lot of tang to it. i LOVE it! If using raw mangoes I go easy on the lime juice and add some fresh thick coconut milk at the end. The other times, I just use the really ripe mangoes, in which case I dont boil the mango and simply chop it up into small pieces and mix with the onions.

Happy eating!
