Notes

As far as I understand it, Thai dishes often try to balance four different flavours, or shall we call them, the 4'S: Salty, Sweet, Sour, Spicy.

The following recipe, which I discovered on Best Recipes ever and ever so slightly modified, does just that. This Thai mango salad is always a big hit and really taste like something you would order at a good Thai restaurant.
