Thai Mango Salad


Thai Mango Salad

Mango is really an amazing fruit…you can eat it when it’s ripe or unripe, not to mention that you can make a dessert as well as a dish or side dish out of it…. and one of my favourite side dish is Mango Salad. The best Thai Mango salad that I’ve tasted so far was at a restaurant in Kg Baru- Restaurant Ali Tom Yam… and if you are in Kuwait, you can go to Oriental Cuisine Restaurant to have a taste of this great side dish.

1 green unripe mango (125g), peeled and shredded
1 small onion, sliced
1 red chili, seeded and sliced
1 tbsp briefly chopped coriander

2 tbsp dried anchovies, rinsed and fried
Some roasted peanuts

1 tbsp dried shrimp, rinsed
2 Thai chilies
1 tbsp lime juice
1 tbsp fish sauce
1 tsp sweet chili sauce
1 tbsp sugar (+/-)


  1. Slightly crush the chilies and dried shrimps in a mortar. Then, put in fish sauce, lime juice, sugar and sweet chili sauce. Mix well.
  2. Pour in the above mixture into the shredded mango, sliced onion and chili . Mix well. Garnish with fried anchovies, roasted peanuts and chopped coriander.
