“I was born and grew up in Vietnam, a tropical country with hot weather and source of different delicious fruits including Ambarella. This salad recipe has been passed on to many generations in my family because it is a great side dish for men to eat while drinking beer, a natural medicine for women to lose some weights, and a cheap but nutritious childhood snack for all children. I remember I used to gather with my friends everyday, put all money together to buy bags of variety of fruits such as guava, papaya, pineapple, tamarind, green mango and of course couldn’t miss ambarella, then we brought to school and shared with others. It was nothing fancy, just some simple snacks, but I have never forgotten those sweet memories…  “

    1. Yes, absolutely! It goes well with beer as much as eating nuts, and because it has a sour taste (which is rich in Vitamin C),so it helps you to eat less. Some people even make ambarella juice to drink, especially on the hot days. Give it a try 🙂
