Tangy and Sweet Mango Pepper Salad
This salad is so simple and SO DELICIOUS! First of all, I am not a huge mango person. I have the hardest time cutting them (why is the core always in a different place?). If you have a mango cutting trick send it my way! I also seem to always try and eat them when they aren't ripe or over ripe. Anyways...I will be buying them and working on my mango skills more often just to make this salad!
With just a few ingredients you can toss this together and it tastes like something you get out at a restaurant. It's sweet, tangy, salty, tart, crunchy and soft.
This recipe is inspired after seeing this YouTube video, which didn't give a recipe so I knew I had to recreate.
- 1 Mango (sliced into thin strips)
- 1 Green Bell Pepper (sliced into thin strips)
- 1 Red Bell Pepper (sliced into thin strips)

- Sea Salt to taste
- Chop veggies and add to 1 large bowl
