Asian Mango Salad

This is such a pretty salad that pairs beautifully with Asian main courses. I served this with Asian steamed fish topped with a soy sauce, garlic, ginger and cilantro broth. There were no leftovers whatsoever!  It's crisp, vibrant, sweet, salty and sour.  There's so much crunch in each bite..what a treat!

1 Mango, peeled and julienned
10 french string beans cut lengthwise
1/4 a red chili, julienned (can omit if you don't like heat)
1.5 tablespoons salted cashews
1 bell pepper julienned
1/2 small red onion, julienned
1/2 cucumber seeded and julienned
1 handful fresh cilantro roughly chopped
1 teaspoon fish sauce
1/2 teaspoon sesame seed oil
1 lime juiced
1/2 teaspoon brown sugar
salt to taste

Mix the fish sauce, sesame oil, lime juice, brown sugar and salt together. Gently toss into the salad and serve. Top with fresh cilantro.
