I can hardly seen green mango at the hypermarket where I usually shop for my groceries and fresh products. When I saw some at the wet market the other morning I grabbed one without further ado. I am a big fan of this salad it is a must order dish whenever we dine in a Thai restaurant.
Some restaurants offer options for extra toppings such boiled chicken feet and prawn. I like them all but always opt for chicken feet as it is not easy to prepare at home. To me, dried shrimps and anchovies are must ingredients in this dish they added little extra "umph".
