Thai Mango Salad

Thai Mango Salad

Mango has to be one of my favorite fruits, and when they are in season we go through as many as we can. While nice in a smoothie or a fruit salad, mango also pairs well with stronger vegetable and herb flavors. That’s where this salad comes in. It’s a great way to start a lager Thai-inspired meal, but is perfectly good on its own, too. If you like the heat that little, fiery Thai Bird chilies provide, add a couple of them, finely chopped, to the salad.
