    Delicious!!! I don't like coconut so added toasted walnuts. Also! added avacado. Very healthy and tasty

    This recipe is absolutely perfect......wouldn't change a thing. What a wonderful salad for summer; I will serve this for family and friends again and again.

    To Irishmama, you could try substituting Italian flat leaf parsley for the cilantro--it has a much milder flavor. Or maybe half the amount of fresh basil since basil has such a strong flavor. A citrus or mint basil might be good too.

    any suggestions for a CILANTRO substitute? I HATE cilantro (don't mind coriander, but cilantro tastes like SOAP to me and my family). Too bad it's such a poplular ingrediant these days.

    I also widh Martha would include nutrition info with her recipes.

    MovealongRuth's shark people link didn't work and I couldn't find a similar recipe searching their website.

    Major Grey's is a brand of bottled chutney. It's a relish of sorts, with mango, raisins, curry, etc. Yummy, in other words. Usually near the mustard, ketchup and other condiments.

    What is Mayor Grey's Mango Chutney?

  • Rocky4JC 28 May, 2008

    If you have a flat griddle and you'd like a easier, more economical way to brown your coconut to an even, pretty golden color, - spread it evenly and stir frequently till you get the hue you desire.

  • wwlam70 28 May, 2008

    make your own or buy it in ethnic stores for the mango chutney sub curry powder for the mustard

  • Queb52 27 May, 2008

    personally I would like an alternate ingrediant for the mustard. I can not tolerate it unless it is the tiniest bit of dry. if I can taste it I can't eat it.

  • darjarcooking 27 May, 2008
