Sweet mango, fragrant basil and zesty lime make up this delicious traditional Asian salad. A Vagabond Temple favorite, it’s both easy to make and packed with flavor; perfect for a light and healthy lunch.
We like ours with a fiery kick but f you prefer less heat, reduce the amount of chilies. For extra crunch and protein, sprinkle with a handful of roasted peanuts.
