IngredientsServes: 4

  • 800g white asparagus
  • pinch of granulated sugar
  • salt to taste
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice, divided
  • 2 tablespoons white wine vinegar
  • white pepper to taste
  • 1/8 teaspoon mild curry powder
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon green peppercorns in brine, drained and chopped
  • 1 ripe large mango, peeled, stone removed and diced
  • 1 bunch scallions, thinly sliced

MethodPrep:15min ›Cook:20min ›Ready in:35min

  1. Peel the asparagus with a vegetable peeler from top to bottom, starting below the tips. Remove any woody ends with a knife and cut the stems into bite-size pieces. Place the asparagus in a pot with water to cover, a pinch of salt and pepper and 1 tablespoon lime juice. Bring to the boil; reduce heat and simmer gently until the asparagus is tender and can be easily pierced with a sharp knife, about 15 to 20 minutes, depending on the thickness of the asparagus. Remove the asparagus and drain, reserving 3 tablespoons of the cooking liquid.
  2. To make the dressing: whisk the vinegar with the remaining 1 tablespoon lime juice, salt, pepper, curry powder, olive oil and reserved cooking liquid in a small bowl. Stir in chopped peppercorns.
  3. Pour dressing over the asparagus pieces. Add diced mango and sliced scallions; gently toss to mix. Season with salt and pepper.
  4. For best results, chill the salad for 1 hour before serving.

Almost Raw Asparagus Mango Salad Recipe

This is such an amazing dish, and so easy to prepare! It’s sure to impress even an those who aren’t fond of asparagus. If you are looking to go 10% raw, that’s easy too. Just don’t boil the vinegar, and cut the amount of vinegar you use in half. You may want to sweeten it a bit, as balsamic vinegar reduction is very sweet, but the mangos may take care of that so taste it before sweetening.


  • 2 pounds asparagus
  • 1 large mango
  • 1 cup balsamic vinegar
  • Hot sauce to taste (I use a peach habanera hot sauce I love!)


Boil balsamic vinegar for 3 minutes to create a reduction (making the vinegar sweeter and thicker). Cut off tough ends of asparagus. Combine all ingredients and let set for 3 hours in refrigerator.

Alternatively you can cook the asparagus lightly if you prefer. In the image above I used three kinds of asparagus, and cook the purple and white variety lightly and left the smaller green asparagus raw. It’s also good served room temperature or warm if you chose.

Sweet mango, savory tomatoes, and the crunch of radishes and cauliflower over leafy greens make this a truly delicious and satisfying salad. This recipe comes from the Revised and Expanded Edition of Medical Medium.

Mangoes have a unique phytochemical compound that helps the liver&rsquos immune system destroy the pockets of bacteria that create liver abscesses. They also help prevent the liver from aging and cells from dying while improving bile production.

Tomatoes contain lycopene, which is a beloved nutrient that the liver admires: the liver uses it to shield itself from cell damage, plus lycopene helps the liver detox red blood cells safely, smoothly, and efficiently.

The pungent, biting nature of radishes comes from a compilation of chemical compounds, many of them undiscovered, that act as disinfectants to the liver, stopping pathogen infection and boosting the liver&rsquos personalized immune system by increasing its white blood cells&rsquo ability to fight and destroy invaders.

Mango Salad


  • 2 to 3 medium-sized tomatoes, roughly chopped
  • 2 cups diced mango
  • 1 to 2 green onions, chopped
  • 3 to 4 cups leafy greens (such as spinach, butter lettuce, or green leaf lettuce)
  • 1 to 3 radishes, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup chopped cauliflower


Place the tomatoes, mango, green onions, leafy greens, radishes, and cauliflower in a medium-sized bowl. Toss until evenly mixed.

Whisk together the lemon juice, maple syrup (if using), and mustard powder (if using) in a small bowl. Add to the salad and toss again. Serve immediately.

Yes, you can as they are sold already precooked. They are soft and with a crab-like taste. Easily and straightly use crab sticks directly into any salads, dips, or elsewhere.

If you have some leftovers then you can easily fridge the amount in an airtight container until the next day. The opened pack of crab sticks can last in your fridge up to 3-5 days. However, the salad will not taste as crunchy and fresh if you refrigerate it for longer. But, you can easily store the salad up to 2-3 days without the dressing. When you are ready to serve it just pour the simple dressing and et voila.

Be choosy when picking your produce, and look for a new-harvest olive oil for this, which will lend a bright, robust flavor.
