Mango and Cucumber Chow

Mango Chow

Billed as Caribbean by Bon Appetit, this mango chow could go equally well with Indian, Thai, or other South/Southeast Asian cuisines. Sweet, spicy, salty, and sour -- delicious!

INGREDIENTS
1 small shallot, thinly sliced into rings
2 garlic cloves, finely grated
½ Scotch bonnet chile or habanero chile, thinly sliced crosswise, seeds removed if less heat is desired
2 Tbsp fresh lime juice
½ teaspoon kosher salt
1 ripe but firm mango, peeled, cut into ½-inch-thick spears
½ English hothouse cucumber

Dill Cucumber Salad

A cool, refreshing side dish. Inspired by these two recipes, but mostly a notional recipe.

1/2 small red onion, also sliced on a mandolin to 1/8" thick
~1 Tbsp kosher salt
~2 Tbsp sugar
~2/3 cup mix of your favorite vinegars (I used mostly white vinegar + cider vinegar + red wine vinegar)

TaKorean Spiced Kale Slaw with Hoisin Tofu

Korean Kale Slaw

So, I'm mildly obsessed with TaKorean's spicy kale slaw with hoisin tofu. The combination of flavors is so delicious that I forego the taco entirely to get a big bowl of this combination instead. When Bon Appetit posted a recipe that seemed similar in flavor profile to the kale slaw half of the TaKorean dish, I decided to try and recreate this treat at home. This is by no means the actual recipe that TaKorean uses, but I think it's a pretty damned good replica.
