On the table in 15 minutes this Ensaladang Mangga Green Mango Salad is both fresh and very flavorful. It’s great to serve with grilled or fried dishes especially pork or fish.
The traditional version of this salad normally has diced green mango, tomato and wedges of salted egg. It’s then mixed with some bagoong and calamansi juice. In this version, we have all those components. We are just going to add more greens (using watercress) and a touch of creaminess to it with some mayonnaise.
Instead of salted egg wedges, the egg is frozen and then grated on the salad. Let’s make it!
These are the ingredients you need to make Ensaladang Mangga Green Mango Salad.
First find a large salad dish or plate and grate half the Itlog Na Maalat (salted egg) all over. This acts as a seasoning for the watercress, which you are going to add on top it.
Next add on the sliced tomatoes and mangoes on the watercress. Finish with the pickled onions and chives and grate the rest of the salted egg on top.
The Ensaladang Mangga Green Mango Salad is served with a creamy bagoong calamansi dressing. For this dressing you are going to need the following ingredients.
To make the dressing mix everything in a bowl and then transfer to a salad dressing server.
It’s best to eat on the same day with the creamy Bagoong Calamansi Dressing, but served on the side.
It will go great along side some Filipino BBQ, Adobo Sliders, and even these Tacos. You can even round it out with some Malamig na Melon and Mango Royale Popsicles.
If you can’t find Green Mango, a regular but firm mango can be used instead. Try to look for one that is not ripe yet.
The Coconut Vinegar can be replaced with Apple Cider Vinegar. It has the same flavor profile.
Calamansi juice can be replaced with lemon juice, but I would not recommend lime in this salad. It’s too bitter and will compete with the watercress.
Bagoong is not replaceable. However in a pinch you can use salt instead. The same with the itlog na maalat.
