Spicy Green Mango Salad

I love love love papaya salad, especially if it’s sour/spicy/salty.  Last summer, I don’t know how much papaya salad I consumed, but it felt like I was getting some once a week.  I always get it from Dragon Star, because the ladies over there always make some kick-butt papaya salad.  Every other papaya salad I’ve had from other people and other places pale in comparison, including mines.  But I’m getting a little bit tired of eating their papaya salad because the texture is so unappetizing to my mouth now.  I prefer to hand chop the papaya, even though it’s time consuming but you get better results.  It’s still good but I think I’ll save it for when I have a bad bad bad craving.

My other favorite spicy green salad is mango salad.  I was eating these at least 2x a month after my tonsillectomy.  They’re so much easier to make and anyone can make it.  Plus, it satisfies that sour/spicy/salty craving I have.

Spicy Green Mango Salad


–  1 green mango

–  2 Thai chili peppers

–  fish sauce, to taste


1.  Peel mango and chop into chunks.  Place the chopped mango in a bowl.  In a mortar and pestle, pound the chili peppers with salt and MSG.  Add to the mango.  Add fish sauce, stir and enjoy.

Doesn’t that look scary delicious?

Chong isn’t a big fan of peppers so I usually eat this All By Myself.  He’ll sometimes look at me like I’m crazy when I’m eating this and trying to get the fire in my mouth under control.  : D

      I gave my mango away to my mom because we were going out of town for the weekend and I didn’t want it to go to waste. I had to go out and buy another one because I had mango remorse. Will definitely be eating it today!
