Crab and green mango salad

all details

Green mango salads are a staple in Thailand and Vietnam, and I love their tartness and crunchy texture. When I make this dish, I prefer to choose a green or unripe mango, that isn't rock hard and has a little ripeness to it. It goes much better with the crab. And if you can't find a green mango, try a very firm just-ripe mango - it will be delicious.
