Mango salad at Bangkok Chef

The best Thai flavors jump off the plate, a riot of fresh, tart, salty, hot, nutty and sweet. Now imagine all this as your favorite childhood pickled green mango—that’s key here, the not-yet-ripeness of the fruit—slivered and tossed, still crunchy and bright, with shallots, cilantro and roasted cashews. And lime juice. And fish sauce. And chilies. And sugar.
