Ginger and Nutmeg had this salad many times in Vietnam, it is also considered a Thai salad. It really does not matter, it is a delicious summer salad. This salad is not hard to make but does require some chopping. A few notes: A bottle of Fish sauce will last a lifetime You can play with the level of "heat" to your taste You can use green papaya instead of mango Instead of chopped peanuts you can use cashews.
