With blender running, add the oil in a slow, steady stream and process until smooth.

Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Salad

Place the bean sprouts in a colander and rinse thoroughly.

In a small saucepan, bring 1 quart of salted water to a boil.

Add the snow peas and cook briefly until tender but still crisp, about 30 seconds.

Pour boiling water and peas over the bean sprouts to wilt them a little.

Rinse immediately under cold water. Drain on paper towels.

In a large bowl, toss vegetables with raisins, mangoes and cashews.

Then, toss with enough dressing to coat the vegetables.

Season to taste with salt and pepper.

Serve on a single platter or individual plates lined with lettuce leaves.
