Good Summer dish, the Sweet Mangoes bring out the flavors of spices. It is up to you to adjust the hotness of the dish. You may add more or less hot peppers. Ginger is never as hot as red peppers. don't hesitate in using it.
Green Banana Peppers
Red Jalapeno Peppers
Fresh Ginger Root
Fresh Perilla Leaves
Fresh Thai Basil leaves
Here we go - The Procedure...
Peel the mangoes, dice them in small pieces.
Cut the peppers in half, remove the seeds, all of them. Slice the peppers in small slices. DON'T touch your eyes with your hands now, don't go to the bathroom (more about this latter).
Dice the sweet onion.
Shred the herbs leaves.
Add olive oil, pomegranate and orange juice, salt, pepper.
Mix by hand.
WASH your hands with soap, at least twice. If you don't you'll be sorry the next time you wipe your eyes, or go tho the bathroom.
One day I'll tell you the story of my Friend Corse who forgot about that cardinal rule...
Enjoy - Bon Appetit
