spicy mango salad.

00000093

One of the foods I really wanted to eat again was the spicy mango salad from a street vendor I found last year near Khao San Road.  This gentlemen was the only person I met that made a spicy mango salad on Khao San Road in Bangkok, Thailand.  It didn’t disappoint (as it didn’t last year!).

With a mix of spiciness, sweetness, sourness, saltiness and savory-ness, this mango salad comprised of mango, lime, peanuts, fish sauce, fried anchovies, fresh crab, red onion, green onions and a secret sauce that when combined altogether is heaven in the mouth.

And what’s more, mangoes have many health benefits including over 20 vitamins and minerals, decreasing the risk of muscular degeneration, colon cancer, heart disease, and improvement in digestion, bone, skin, and hair support. What’s not to love!?

I plan to eat this every night while we’re in Bangkok as he only comes out when the sun goes down.

Does it make you salivate?
