Green Mango Salad

  • Author: Meghan Telpner




  • 2 green mangos (that means unripe)
  • 1/2 package kelp noodles (optional), rinsed
  • 2 Tbs sesame seeds, lightly toasted
  • 1/4 cup fresh mint leaves, chopped
  • 1/4 red onion, sliced thin and soaked in cold water for 15 minutes (helps cut down on the bad breath effect)

Ginger Lime Dressing

  • 1/3 cup lime juice
  • 2 Tbs coconut crystals
  • 2 Tbs maple syrup
  • 1 Tbs toasted sesame oil
  • 2 tsp, grated ginger root
  • 1/2 tsp sambal oelek (or 1 tsp medium red chili, minced, or cayenne to taste)
  • 1 tsp sea salt


  1. Spiral slice (or cut into long thin matchsticks), your green mangos.
  2. Mix together with kelp noodles, sesame seeds, mint leaves, and red onion.
  3. In a blender, blend together the sauce ingredients.
  4. Taste dressing for flavours. You may want to add more sweet or more spice depending on your preference.
  5. Just before serving, combine the dressing with the mango, red onion, green chili, most of the sesame seeds and most of the herbs.
  6. Garnish with the remaining sesame seeds and herbs.
