Author Notes: Inspired by Kitchen Butterfly's mango slaw, which is lovely, I decided to test out a favorite combination of mine, the mango with an heirloom tomato. This is a simple easy salad to make, which you can adjust to your preferences. It can be a great addition to a picnic.Sagegreen

Makes just over a cup

  • 1/2 cup diced peeled mango
  • 1/2 cup heirloom tomato, diced
  • 1/4 cup finely chopped sweet onion
  • 1/2 teaspoon fine sea salt
  • 1 tbl. snipped basil leaves
  • 1 tablespoon snipped fresh coriander leaves
  • squeeze of fresh lime juice
  • drizzle of extra virgin olive oil, optional
  • 1/2 teaspoon coarse sea salt, to taste
  • 1 tablespoon Aleppo pepper, to taste
  1. Combine the diced mango, tomato and onions in a shallow bowl. Sprinkle the fine salt on these and let sit for a few minutes.
  2. Bruise the basil and coriander leaves with a muddler or spoon. Toss these in with the salad.
  3. Squeeze the lime juice over the salad. Drizzle a little olive oil on top if you like. Sprinkle with Aleppo pepper and coarse salt. Serve right away.

Mouth-watering! I think this would also be delicious with watermelon and tomato, if mango is unavailable.

Thanks, BMF. What a great idea. I think watermelon with a yellow or orange heirloom tomato would be especially lovely.

This looks and sounds lovely! Love that you were inspired by another food52er, and love the tomango moniker.

Thanks, hla. I came up with the moniker after I made the lassi drink last year. KB's restraint with ingredients also inspired me. This is very simple, but really fun to eat.

Thanks, KB. My goals are to create new recipes that have fewer ingredients. I love the elegant simplicity of your herbal mango slaw.
