Sweet & Spicy Thai Mango Pineapple Salad

February 3, 2023
Thai mango salad has to be the most refreshing and flavorful salad I have ever eaten in my entire life. It is extremely complex, with sweet, sour, and spicy notes hitting your tongue all at once. This will satisfy any and all cravings that your body may have. I made mine into a spicy version but you can feel free to adjust the amount of heat that you would like to add. To help balance out the hot chili sauce, I added some pineapple to go along with the mangos.

This is so easy to throw together and brings a bunch of health properties to the table from all of the raw fruits, veggies, and herbs. This can be enjoyed for lunch with some popped rice cakes, or it can be served with some white rice for dinner. This makes for a wonderful meal prep, as it tastes even better after it has had some time to sit in the fridge and its flavors marinate together.
