Thai Green Mango Salad

We have been out of town due to a death in the family. It was a strange sort of turn of events that we are trying to recover from at the moment.  It is strange the way a death can bring unresolved issues into the forefront.  Suffice to say that I am so glad to be home.  There is no place like home.

If you have never had green mango, I urge you to give it a try.  It has nice flavor, bordering on sour but in a pleasant way.

Green Mango Salad*

2 green mangoes, julienned
3/4 cup mung bean sprouts
1 purple onion or vidalia, sliced
1 carrot, julienned
1/4 cup cilantro
1 teaspoon crushed red pepper
1 tablespoon fish sauce
2 tablespoons lime juice
1 tablespoon palm sugar, grated
1/4 cup peanuts

Combine all ingredients and chill.


FYI- Green mango is unripened mango.
