When, for an early birthday gift, the lovely D drove an hour and a half to pick me up and drive another hour and a half to the Stratford Festival, I wanted a fresh and gluten-free lunch recipe.   As quick and easy-to-make as they are tangy and sweet, these mango salad rolls were the perfect treat.

Mango Salad Rolls

Gently toss together:

1 carrot, julienned

1 red pepper, julienned

1 green mango, in small pieces

1/8 red onion, thin slices

1 small bunch each coriander, basil and mint, chopped roughly

Now thinly slice 1/2 block extra-firm tofu.  Pan fry in vegetable oil until golden.  Chop into bite-sized pieces and add to salad.

Also add juice of 1 lime, 2 tsp sesame oil, 1/4 tsp red chili flakes, 1/4 tsp salt and a pinch of sugar.

Enjoy as is or fold with leafy lettuce and vermicelli into softened large rice paper for salad rolls.

    It was great, Saveur! Saw West Side Story and the very appreciative audience made it super fun! :)
