Mango Salad

If there is one thing India should be absolutely proud of, that is Malihbad ke Dussheri aam!!! O! They are heavenly. People who have not tasted it will not know what I am talking about but people who have tasted it will never like any other kind of mango. The other day I was telling my DH that one of the reason people must be going back to India from abroad is mangoes :) But this salad is not made using Indian mangoes. We don't get them in Canada. I have used Mexican mango for this. Not like real Indian mango, but pretty good for a salad.

For salad:
1 mango peeled and cut in 3/4" cubes.
5-6 grape tomatoes cut in half
5-6 mint leaves chopped finely.

For dressing:
2 tbsp mango juice
1 tbsp olive oil
1/2 tsp chunky chat masala (or any masala)
1/4 tsp anardana (dry grinded pomegranate)
1/2 tsp sugar
few pinches salt
pinch crushed pepper
1/2 tsp lime juice

Mix all the dressing ingredients well in a small bowl. In a salad bowl toss mangoes, tomatoes and mint leaves. Now pour the dressing and mix well. Refrigerate for 20-30 minutes and serve chilled.
