Crunchy Thai Mango Salad With Peanut Dressing

The perfect meal fix, Thai Salad with mangoes and crunchy peanut dressing is as delicious as it is healthy.

Hey guys, today I’m sharing one of my all-time favourite salads. If you are bored of the green salad and craving something refreshing and light, you are in the right place. This simple Thai mango salad is not only vibrant but also an explosion of fresh flavours, with a crunchy texture of peanuts as well as juicy mango that takes it to another level. A Thai salad is great on its own, or as an accompaniment to the main dish. Thai cuisine is well-known for including ingredients to excite the palate by combining sweet, salty, spicy, tangy and sour in a single dish.
