I have tasted this Thai green mango salad in restaurants few times. The best thing I love about the salad is its spicy and I love the peanuts in the salad. Yeah I know, I am not a big fan of mangoes, so I like it after these two. Last week we went to Mayura for lunch and I had this salad, it was very spicy, sweet and crunchy with the fresh shredded mangoes that are not sour and the peanuts. I immediately wrote down the ingredients I could guess and decided to try soon. I stay far away from salad usually but not this one, I love it! Mainly coz its spicy… Vj told they may use the almost ripe mangoes that’s why the sweetness is there. But I knew it was from firm mangoes and some sweet syrup is there. I googled and referred this recipe but I adapted to suit my taste as well as what I had in the restaurant, with the noted down ingredients of course. Check out my Thai green curry recipe too.
Serve this spicy salad as starter. Serve along with fresh cut carrots or cucumber to bite on in between to nullify the spiciness!
