Mango madness

green mango salad

Mango salad is a typical Philippine side dish that usually accompanies grilled or fried fish. Although usually made with unripe green mangoes, it can also be made with ripe mangoes. Use any mangoes you have for a delicious and fresh side dish. If you've never used pungent shrimp paste, consider substituting fish sauce.

Is fish sauce kosher? What can be substituted for it if not....anchovies ?

This looks really good and healthy. I make a similar salad to this with tomatoes, cucumbers, onion and avocado. I'll have to add mango next time to make it a little sweeter!
