    What you need:
    About 400g of chinese cabbage/wombok
    2 cups cooked chicken breast (shredded, chunks, whatever)
    2 mangoes (peeled, sliced and seeded) Canned mangoes work well too if you dont want to extra effort
    Handful of chopped unsalted peanuts

    2 tablespoons lime juice
    1 heaped tablespoon brown sugar
    1 tablespoon sesame oil
    Chopped chilli (only tiny little bit of pre-chopped chilli in a jar if your not a fan of hot food, if you LOVE spicy food like me go the whole damn chilli icon_razz.gif)

    What to do:
    1. In a large bowl combine chicken, wombok and mango.
    2. Dressing: In a jug whisk together all the ingredients with a fork. Season to taste icon_smile.gif
    3. Throw peanuts and half the dressing into the bowl. Toss.
    4. Serve up while adding remaining dressing to each invdividual plate.
    5. Top with sesame seeds if desired.


    I done the math and it contains about 900kJ, 9g fat and 1.5g sat fat.
    So its pretty good altogether icon_smile.gif

    I had the most amazing green mango salads in Cambodia, but they made them with shrimp. Mango is in season these days, too. I'll definitely try it out!
