Asian Cucumber & Raw Mango Salad

As I reminisce my childhood stories of train journeys during summer vacations, the best part of it were the train vendors who would sell cucumbers and raw mangoes laden with salt, chilli and lemon. Sharing them with cousins and siblings, gossiping and eating non stop form the major part of my beautiful memories. While I made this Asian salad today, I somehow couldn’t stop missing those times.

This salad is made with cool cucumber and tangy raw mangoes and tossed in a delicious Thai dressing. The dressing balances the coolness of cucumber and tanginess of raw mangoes with the right amount of spicy and sweet. I also add crushed roasted peanuts for the added crunch and mint leaves to add freshness and flavour. By now you must have realised, we love our food a bit hot and fiery, hence the use of green chillies here. You can opt out to add that as per your taste preference.

Which food takes you back to the memory lane?
