This tangy mango salad is a staple at Thai restaurants, and can easily be made at home. Use a mandolin to easily prepare the vegetables, and try to find ripe mangos that are not yet too soft. They will be much easier to cut into. Start this Thai inspired meal with Thai chicken soup, and serve the salad alongside steamed fish as a main course. A perfect ending would be a deliciously sweet pineapple granita.
