Mango glut

So the man on the Whitechapel Road who sold me my mangoes on Monday (see argh-Tories-I-want-to-cry post below) would only let me buy a whole box of 15, rather than the three I wanted. Thus, for the last three days, it has been mangoes for breakfast, dessert, and now dinner.


Cold noodle salad with mango, radish & cucumber



Boil rice vermicelli noodles for a couple of minutes, drain, run with cold water. Put in fridge.

Prepare veg: use a peeler to make pretty ribbons from cucumber (I used one of the small ones from an Indian supermarket) and radish (I used one of the big ones from an Indian supermarket). Now put these in a bowl in the fridge too.

Prepare the dressing: one tbsp each of light soy, sesame oil and rice wine vinegar (though white wine vinegar did for me).

Prepare garnish bits: roughly chop a handful of coriander, finely chop a red chilli, finely slice a spring onion or two.

Slice your mango.

Now assemble: Toss the noodles with most of the dressing, coriander, spring onion, chilli and a good sprinkling of sesame seeds. Gently fold in the veg. Now pile on the mango, scatter the remaining garnishy bits and dressing on top, and finish with a final pinch of sesame seeds and maybe, like me, a few nuggets of pure crunchy peanut butter (I didn’t have any whole ones).
