In addition to being a great looking colorful salad, it also has an award winning taste.

The flavors of pea shoots, radish, red cabbage, cucumbers, and green leafy lettuce have a great balance in both taste and textures.  It’s:

Earthy

Pungent (slightly)

Beyond the vegetables, the mango is the best choice for this salad.  I prefer small yellow mango to the larger red-green mango. Yellow mangos seem to have stronger  tropical flavors. They’re also sweeter and juicier.

I used roasted peanuts to add some extra crunchiness.  You can use any kind of nuts you like. It’s awesome and you can’t go wrong when serving it with balsamic vinaigrette dressing. Try this homemade mustard seed strawberry balsamic vinaigrette dressing.
