This is my favorite go-to recipe when I am looking for something simple, delicious, and nutritious! As IIN teaches, cooking doesn’t need to be complicated to be healthy. This salad only takes 15 minutes to prepare. Enjoy!

Thai Green Mango and Apple Salad

Ingredients:

4 unripe mangos (preferable green), shredded

2 Granny Smith apples, shredded

1 cup green beans, cut into 2-inch pieces

1 cup cherry tomatoes, cut in halves

1 cup mung bean sprouts

1 small red chili pepper, minced

2 cloves garlic, minced

½ cup roasted peanuts

4 tablespoons of fresh lime juice (about 2 limes)

⅓ cup cilantro

3-5 tsp. Sriracha (I use Ninja Squirrel – it’s vegan, non-GMO and gluten-free!)

Directions:

  1. In a mortar, smash the garlic, red chili pepper, green beans and halved cherry tomatoes until the beans are bruised and the tomato juices come out
  2. Transfer to a bowl and toss with the rest of the ingredients
  3. Garnish salad with peanuts
  4. Enjoy!
