Serves 4

Ingredients:

Salad:

1 red and yellow organic bell pepper, stem, seeds, veins removed julienned
2 organic carrots, peeled and julienned
1/2 head of organic green cabbage
1/2 head of organic purple cabbage
1/4 cup fresh organic cilantro leaves, packed
1/4 cup fresh organic mint leaves, packed
2- 3 green organic onions, green parts sliced thin for garnish
1/2 organic mango peeled and sliced
2 tablespoons chopped toasted peanuts for garnish

Spicy Citrus Vinaigrette:

1 small organic orange
1 organic lime
2 tablespoons of sesame oil
2 tablespoons of rice vinegar
1 1/2 tablespoons of grated fresh ginger
1 organic garlic clove
1 teaspoon of red-pepper flakes
1/4 teaspoon coarse salt

Zest and juice the lime and the orange and put into medium bowl. Add the remaining ingredients and whisk until combined. Adjust seasoning if necessary.

In a large bowl toss: bell peppers, carrots, cabbage, cilantro, mint and green onions with vinaigrette. Put salad into a large serving bowl and neatly lay cut mango across the top of the salad. Sprinkle salad with chopped peanuts and serve.

Chef's note: I love to add marinated chicken or duck confit to this salad and serve it as a main dish. I buy the already prepared Duck Leg Confit.

Additionally, a tip and a shortcut if you don't want to do all the chopping of the above vegetables is to simply use a food processor.
