Goi Xoai (Green mango salad)
Still the similar recipe is applied, but just a little change in ingredients is enough to give birth to a new flavoring dish; what is mentioned here is a Vietnamese popular favorite named “gỏi xoài”. The main ingredient is mango that is peeled off, sliced finely, soaked in salty water for a while and then drained off. It tastes crunchy, a little sour, sweet, salty and quite refreshing. Carrot is also pickled, sliced into julienne strips and drained off. Meanwhile, coriander, mint, and other herbs are coarsely chopped and mixed finely with green mango, carrot, bean sprouts, chili and fried prawn or grilled shrimp.
The concoction is displayed in a plate with a under layer of lettuce. It is adaptable dish so feel free to add your favorite herbs or veggies. Finally, toss it gently with the usual delicious dressing, a harmonious mingle of lime juice, ground garlic and chili, sour and salty fish sauce, and sprinkle it with roasted peanuts, an indispensible part for a buttery favor. Enjoy the dish and experience the subtle difference!
