Ingredients

For the salad…

  • 100 grams Shiso leaf (a small bunch or ½ medium, approx. 3.5oz)
  • 60 grams mixed salad leaves (2 cups, approx. 2oz)
  • 250 grams baby cucumbers (or 2 Lebanese cucumbers, approx. 9oz)
  • 450 grams green (raw) mango (2 mangos, approx. 16oz)

For the Asian Green Goddess dressing…

  • ¼ cup lime juice (from 2 medium limes)
  • 1 tsp sesame oil

For the garnish…

  • ¼ cup coriander (cilantro) leaves (chopped)
  • 1 tbsp coconut flakes

Instructions

1-PREPARE INGREDIENTS

  • Cut the shiso leaves from the stems and place in a colander.
  • Wash them under gently cold running water in the sink, tap the colander on the edge of the sink to remove excess water.
  • Then either pat them dry with a clean kitchen towel or spin dry in a salad spinner.
  • Cut them chiffonade style. To do this stack a few at a time on top of each other, roll them into a cigar shape and slice thinly into ribbons.
  • Wash the mixed salad leaves, remove any wilted or damaged leaves. Then either pat or spin dry.
  • Wash the cucumbers, dry and trim them, then slice on the diagonal.
  • Wash and peel your green mangos, then slice into a fine julienne using a julienne peeler or julienne slicer attachment on your mandoline/v-slicer (be careful not to cut your fingers). Discard the seed, you should have approximately 2 cups of green mango.

2-BLITZ DRESSING

  • Place all the dressing ingredients in a high-speed blender or a small food processor, season then and blitz until combined.
  • Taste and adjust seasonings to your liking. Pour into a small serving jug.

3-ASSEMBLE SALAD

  • Place the salad leaves, shredded shiso, baby cucumbers and julienned mango in a large mixing bowl. Season and toss to combine, then arrange in salad bowl or on a salad platter.
  • Garnish with the chopped coriander/cilantro and coconunt flakes. Serve with the dressing on the side.
