Green mango anchovies salad & caramelised pork belly

The texture and flavour of green mango are perfect for a summer salad. These crunchy anchovies especially go well with the sour and sweet taste of this tropical fruit. It’s so hard to stop once you start munching it. Just a note, Thai green mango has deeper green colour and not as sour as the green elephant mango. You can use the later mango as well but it would need sweeter dressing. 

The green mango and anchovies salad is the best pair with caramelized pork belly. So if you collect one of sauce jars at the Vietnamese Sunday Brunch, make the tenderly caramelized pork belly and serve with it. We have the recipe for our sauce below. It will just be like the delicious pork belly you’ve had with our sticky rice on the first two Sunday Brunch!!

Bon Appetite!
