oh man, this mango salad tastes even better after sitting in the fridge a few days! The recipe: cook one packet of rice noodles. drain and toss with a little oil to keep them from sticking. mix with cubed unripe mango (ours was starting to go orange/red on the outside), shredded carrot (about 1 cup), minced scallions, and chopped peanuts. the dressing was lime juice, rice vinegar, fish sauce (we substituted soy sauce for the strict vegetarians), chili (2 superhot bird's eye chilis) and a bit of sugar.
big hole! big hole! big hole! big man! big man!

that recipe sounds LOVELY. I quite fancy some but there's no chance I'm making that any time soon. / lazy.

I do take exception to the insinuation that one can be vegetarian and consume fish.

FIGHT! FIGHT! FIGHT! FIGHT!

"vegetarians" have to compromise alot in Okinawa, or never eat out. our cooking club group has always been strictly vegetarian though. i thought i could get away with some nom pla, since everyone in the group eats at the local thai restaurants, but we decided to stay true to our original principles. to be honest, in this recipe, I don't think it would have made much difference.

When I lived in Monolkiri (Cambodia) we struck a deal with a restaurant that we'd eat there every day if they didn't mess with our food. mind, they add the sauce at the end over there anyway. stinks the whole place out. ick.
