    This recipe is essentially a reworked version of a Thai classic, 'Green Mango Salad'. If you replace the mangoes in this recipe with green (unripened mangoes), the flavor is more intense, and texturally superior. Replace the 4 mangoes with green mangoes (peeled, separated from pith, and cut into matchsticks - not chunks). Using essentially the same ingredients, except nix the olive oil (totally unnecessary fats), add 2-3 tablespoons (varies with size of mangoes) fish sauce and 1 tablespoon sugar PER mango used, when dressing with lime, cilantro, etc. Replace shallots with red onions for a milder flavor. Allow to marinate some 10-15 minutes and top with chopped toasted peanuts or cashews before serving.  -  29 Jan 2009  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I used thinly sliced red onion instead of shallots. Instead of red pepper flakes, I used thin slivers of sweet red peppers. The tastes complemented one another beautifully and it was a very pretty salad also!  -  18 Jul 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    WOW, I LOVE THIS!!! We normally stay away from recipes with no reviews, but took a chance. I only gave it 5 stars because there is not a 50 star button.  -  07 Jun 2005  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
