This vibrant, refreshing salad makes a terrific accompaniment to any dish in Chetna’s Healthy Indian, whether it be vegetable, chicken, fish, or dal. The mango’s sweetness is offset by the chili kick and the zingy taste of mint, while cucumber and radish add lightness and crunch.
1. Put all the dressing ingredients, except the oil, into the bowl of a mini food processor and blitz to a paste. With the motor running, slowly add the oil and continue to blitz until the mixture emulsifies and becomes creamy.
2. Put the salad ingredients into a serving bowl. Add the dressing and toss well. Serve at room temperature, if you like, or pop the salad into the refrigerator to chill for 10 minutes or so, which is also great!
