This is another version of Vietnamese salad. Different from my previously posted Vietnamese Salad Noodle, this Vietnamese Mango Salad is meatless and does not use noodles. But I used the same Asian dressing made from the wonderful combination of lime juice, fish sauce, chili, sugar and sesame oil. This salad has a touch of sweetness from the mango, which also makes it not totally carb-free (even though it has no noodles). But rest assured that this salad is still a low-carb dish.
