Critical Ingredients

The mangoes, of course, as well as onions for bite and fresh chili peppers. If you can’t get fresh red chili peppers, use Hungarian peppers or regular red peppers. Or substitute 2 teaspoons of finely chopped red jalapenos. I would not advise using Thai red chilies, as one bite can cause a lot of grief. And chopped, they will give off too much heat to this cool summer salad. Mint is nice, but fresh coriander will also work.
