Quickie Amba (Pickled Mango Condiment) – Recipe

Quickie Amba Pickled Mango Condiment

A few weeks ago, I visited Shauna and Dan on Vashon to shoot a video about the sabich recipe in my cookbook.

My family especially loves to eat meze-style in the summer, when no-one feels like heating up the kitchen or eating a heavy dinner. To make a nice meze, you can make a couple of items from scratch (maybe tabbouleh or this warm grape …
