Zest and juice the lime and the orange and put into medium bowl. Add the remaining ingredients and whisk until combined. Adjust seasoning if necessary.
In a large bowl toss: bell peppers, carrots, cabbage, cilantro, mint and green onions with vinaigrette. Put salad into a large serving bowl and neatly lay cut mango across the top of the salad. Sprinkle salad with chopped peanuts and serve.
Chef's note: I love to add marinated chicken or duck confit to this salad and serve it as a main dish. I buy the already prepared Duck Leg Confit by D'Artagnan. You will find my recipe for a citrus marinated chicken here.
Additionally, a tip and a shortcut if you don't want to do all the chopping of the above vegetables is to simply use a food processor like a Cuisinart.
