How to Make a Peanut and Mango Salad

by Neha Agarwal ; Updated August 31, 2017

While the peanut masala chaat is a popular street-snack in India – chaat refers to small, quick portions of street food, after all – you don't have to enjoy this rendition on a sidewalk. Create this peanut and mango salad for a backyard barbecue, and pair the dish with grilled entrees and an equally summery dessert. Roasted peanuts and sweet mango mix with an array of flavors like mint and lime, and the resulting taste is savory, sweet and all-around delicious. Just make sure you have a large enough bowl to place the salad in, because everyone at your barbecue is going to want a scoop.

Combine the Ingredients in a Large Bowl

Start by placing the chopped mango in a bowl. Then, add the onion, cayenne pepper and chili pepper.

Mix in More Ingredients

Pour in the diced tomato, and then add the remaining ingredients: the roasted peanuts, cilantro, mint, lime, salt and chaat masala.

Toss the Salad Together

Gently toss the ingredients together. Be careful not to crush the mango!

Serve and Enjoy

Adjust the seasoning, serve and enjoy with a cold drink.
