Total time: 
Serves: 2
  • 2 mangoes, peeled + julienned
  • 1 red bell pepper, julienned
  • ½ bunch of cilantro, roughly chopped
  • 2 shallots, thinly sliced*
  • ½ cup (37 g) of cashews, toasted + finely chopped**
  • juice of 1 lime (~4 tbsp of juice)
  • 3 tbsp tamari, shoyu/soy sauce (if not gf), or coconut aminos
  • 2 tbsp honey, maple syrup or sweetener of choice
  • ¼ tsp chili garlic sauce or sriracha
  1. place the cashews in a saute/frying pan on medium heat + toast until golden. shake the pan frequently to avoid burning. allow them to cool, roughly chop, + set aside
  2. mix all the dressing ingredients in a small bowl until well combined. taste + adjust seasoning as needed. I added more lime for sourness + sriracha for spice! this depends on your taste buds so be sure to use 'em!
  3. place all the ingredients, except the dressing, in a bowl + combine
  4. pour the dressing over the salad + combine
  5. enjoy immediately!
*red onions or green onions can be used instead of shallots if you'd like but shallots are my favorite here
**peanuts can be used instead of cashews
