Mango & Mixed bell pepper Salad

My friend prepared this salad at a party and I simply loved it so much. I couldn't believe how bell peppers could taste so delicious. Although, there were a lot of yummy dishes to eat at the party, I simply made this salad as my meal for that day :)

She never gave me the recipe for this salad, but I guessed the ingredients while eating it and came out with a dressing of my own for it and it turned out to be almost similar to what I had eaten. I simply love the colors of this salad.

Preparation Time : 20 minutes
Ready in : 10 minutes

Serves : 4

Ingredients :
1 big green capsicum
1 big red bell pepper
1 big yellow pepper
1 big orange pepper
1 raw mango
1 white onion cut finely lengthwise

for the dressing:

1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
1 tbsp of lemon juice
salt to taste
pepper to taste
1/2 tsp of crushed dried basil leaves

Method :

  • First cut all the peppers into thin long strips. All the strips should be cut evenly.
  • Cut the raw mango also in thin long strips.
  • Mix all the salad dressing ingredients together in a bowl and keep aside
  • Take a nice salad bowl. First add the peppers, then the finely cut onion and then the raw mango and mix well and refrigerate it for about 20 minutes
  • Just before serving the salad, pour in the dressing over it and mix well
  • This salad goes well with continental dishes.
