Mango Kani Salad

5 from 1 reviews

With a sweet and crunchy spin, this simple kani salad with mango is a delightful take on a traditional kani salad. The slightly spicy and somewhat sweet dressing is full of umami flavor but light enough to let the salad shine through. Garnished with black sesame seeds for a beautiful presentation and an extra nutty, crunch.



For the salad:

  • 1 mango, chopped
  • 1 jalapeño, diced
  • 1 package of imitation crab meat, shredded
  • 1 tbsp black sesame seeds

For the dressing:

  • ¼ cup mayo
  • 1 tbsp sriracha 
  • ½ tbsp sesame oil
  • ¼ tbsp rice vinegar
  • 1 tbsp soy sauce
  • 1 tsp lemon juice


  1. In a small bowl, whisk together dressing ingredients until smooth.
  2. Combine kani, mango, and jalapeño in a mixing bowl.
  3. Pour ½ of the dressing over salad ingredients, mix well to combine.
  4. Garnish with black sesame seeds.
