Lemongrass for Scrub and Salad

A couple of months ago I made a Lavender Sugar Scrub (find recipe here), just to try it because it looked so good, but the scrub was so great, that I used it every day. Especially the cocos oil in it does a lot of good things for my skin. So now the jar is empty and today I made me a new scrub. This time I used Lemongrass instead of Lavender and I changed the red foodcoloring for a mix of green and yellow. 


I love Lemongrass and I guess that's why I also love Thai food, because the Thai use a lot of the grass in their dishes. I also love veggies, so today I share one of my favorite Thai vegetable dishes with you. 

What you need for 4 persons:

* 2 stems of lemongrass (also called sereh)
* juice of 1 lemon
* 2 scallions
* 2 unripe mangos
* 1 tablespoon fish sauce
* 1 teaspoon brown sugar
* fresh mint

Chop lemongrass and scallions very fine. Mix sugar, lemon juice and fish sauce, until sugar is dissolved. Cut the mango's in very thin slices. Mix all together. Sprinkle the leaves of the mint over the salad. That's it. 

Enjoy! Yummie!

    1. The first time I made it, I made a lot and could use it for about three months. Then the jar was empty, but the ingredients were still good to use.
