Ensaladang Mangga’t Chicharon with Barrio Fiesta Bagoong Sweet Dressing

With its savory combination of sour, sweet, and umami flavors, Ensaladang Mangga’t Chicharon (Green Mango Salad with Pork Chicharon) becomes the essential salad partner to any richly flavored meat or seafood spread. This salad will be perfect for barbecue party dishes – pork barbecue, roast chicken, grilled bangus, barbecued catfish, or stuffed squid – but is also a tasty match to hamburgers and steaks.

Barrio Fiesta Bagoong Sweet adds a touch of sweetness to the dressing that contrasts well against the tartness of green mango. The pork chicharon topping gives added crunchiness and texture; sprinkle it at the last minute to keep it perfectly crunchy.

This dressing keeps well in the fridge and travels well in the chiller if you’re bringing it to a barbecue party. Add it to your salad and chill, covered, before serving, or place in a dish on the side; it’s up to you.
