Thai Mango Salad

Wuan and I have been trying out Thai food on and off lately. Amongst our favourites is the Thai Mango Salad. Lime juice, fish sauce, cooking oil and sugar are added to a mixture of roasted peanuts, dried shrimps, sliced onions, chopped chilli padi and julienned unripe sour mango. This unlikely concoction titillates the taste buds with a tangy blast of sourness from the mango, a dash of sweetness from the sugar and some saltiness from the dried shrimps and fish sauce.

The mango salad is an appetiser that can be eaten just like that. Sometimes, I like to have it with white rice and nothing else. This dish is simply a pleasure to savour at any time of the day. One of the places that we like to go just for the mango salad is Rak Thai at The Gardens in Mid Valley. We would just drop in for a helping of the salad and then continue with our window shopping after that.
