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! Read More

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. Read More

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. Read More

This was an interesting compliment to BBQ meat. Found the pepper flakes to be a bit strong so I suggest using less. A good sweet mango is a stand alone flavor & I felt the spices masked its sweetness and didn't really enhance it. Read More

This is really good and really refreshing. I'd say don't use over ripe mangoes or it will get soupy. ALSO- a really nice variation to try: replace Cilantro with Basil if you like basil more. Read More

I have made this twice & we love it; however the 1T red pepper flakes is unbelievable. I sifted it with a strainer to keep the seeds out & used only a tiny amount of red pepper but it was still overpowering. Next time I will try Peggy's suggestion to use red onion & red bell pepper. Read More

A tad too spicy for me but overall very summery and interesting. Will probably make again with half the pepper. Read More
