Somehow while I was trying to upload a new recipe, it got published twice. So since I can't seem to delete it, I have decided to modify the recipe into another raw salad. I will upload a new photo, but am putting in a similar image which also shows white onion with Aleppo. - Sagegreen —Sagegreen

Test Kitchen Notes

Sagegreen is the Queen of Tom-Mango (tomatoes and mangoes, cf. Heirloom Tomato and Mango Lassi with Ground Sumac). This salad epitomizes the virtues of combining tomatoes and mangoes; it's simple to assemble and has a mix of ingredients that results in complex flavours. I loved the sweet and pleasant bite of white onions, balancing juicy mangoes and tasty tomatoes. Looking for fragrance? Enter lime, aka Citrus aurantifolia and basilicum, full of fresh, floral scents. Thank you SG. - Kitchen Butterfly —Kitchen Butterfly
