Tasty Stuff...

I found this cool grater at the store you love to hate - Marshalls. This is the best tool ever for a lot of things. It has three different sizes you can snap into place. The first thing I made was a Green Mango Salad.

I've been cooking a lot more here in PR than in Washington because I've got too - there isn't much variety of fresh stuff. There is also the game we've got going of eating 3 things from the yard. So here is the latest installment - Green Mango Salad. This is a surprisingly refreshing salad that used 3 things from the yard!

Green Mango Salad
grate 2 green mangoes
1/4 cup grated coconut (toast it)

3 tbsp fish sauce
3 tbsp lime juice
1-2 tbsp brown sugar

1/2 cup chopped basil
1-2 fresh red chillies

3-4 spring onions
chopped nuts - handful


This looks odd but it is more variety and was tasty. It was pork with tomatoes (from the yard) and all kinds of spices like cinnamin, nutmeg and other stuff. Something different.

Green Mango interesting. I like green mangos with salt and felt that it is a shame that I could not enjoy them in other things. I like the idea..
