Green mango salad (Goi Xoai)- A Thai inspired creation

Sitting in the fruit compartment of the fridge are a couple of beautiful green mangoes. There are two varieties,  the sweet and the slightly sour, both are deliciously crunchy in texture. Slice them up and serve with chilli salt, it has to be one of my favourite fruit. Hmmm.....just thinking about it makes me salivate.

I love to use the sour variety for salads, this is a Thai inspired creation with tomatoes, red onions and dried shrimp. The sweet, sour and salty dressing makes this a perfect accompaniment with BBQ meats and fried food.
