A salad made with the unripened “Queen of Philippine Fruit”.

Ingredients :

    • 2 medium unripe mangoes (about 1 lb/ 500 g), peeled and sliced
    • 2 ripe tomatoes, sliced

    • 5 shallots, sliced

Note : To make salted eggs, place 3/4 cup (12 tablespoons) salt into a pan, add a dozen eggs in the shell and enough water to cover. Boil for 2 minutes, then transfer the eggs to sterilized jars and add the boiled salted water to fill the jar. Seal well and set aside for 11/2 months. Always cook the salted eggs before using. Salted eggs are available from Chinese supermarkets.
