The Fine Beans and Mango Salad by Chef Simon Lau Cederholm is fenomenal! Simon is well-known for his particular love and respect of Brazilian ingredients and culinary culture. His restaurant Aquavit has been awarded three stars from Guia Brazil 2013 (a Michelin equivalent) and is one of only six Brazilian restaurants to have been awarded that honor in 2013.
Simon’s unique cuisine merges his Russian and Danish roots, while staying true to Brazilian styles. His food is sublime!
This delicate and crisp salad has nostalgic undertones for Cooking New Stories Founder Daniela Paiva, because Simon also happens to be her uncle in law.
This salad is one of his contribution to her grandmother’s recipe book, which all family members contribute towards as a way of celebrating their shared passion for food and family.
This recipe does not have measure because it depends on your crowd. Just make sure to make a quantity that is suitable for eating right away. The salad loses a bit of its colour and freshness if you need to store it in the fridge.
