Sauté the Vegetables and Mango
Defrost the green beans slightly in the microwave, then rinse and pat dry. Heat oil in a large frying pan. Add garlic, seasonings, and chili sauce. Add green beans and sauté over low heat for 10-12 minutes, stirring occasionally. Raise heat for the last two to three minutes. Remove green beans from frying pan and transfer to a small bowl.
Wipe out the frying pan. Add a little oil to the pan and stir-fry the mushrooms for two minutes, until slightly wilted. Add some salt and pepper to taste. Transfer to a second small bowl.
Add a drop of oil to the pan and stir-fry the diced mango for two to three minutes.
Place cut lettuce on a large platter. Add each vegetable or fruit on top. Serve the dressing and pretzel or crouton garnish on the side.
Alternatively, place the lettuce in a glass bowl. Layer each vegetable on top, and put the mango last. Pour the dressing over the salad immediately before serving. Serve the garnish on the side.
