Hi hugbear,
Just love all your recipes. This one looks really delicious. Is it kind of like chicken chop? Can't find green mango here, so I think I will use thinly sliced iceberg lettuce?

Hi, thanks for loving my recipes. May I know who and where you are from? If you use iceberg lettuce, it will be different as the green mango is really sourish in taste.

I would say that by using lettuce, you will get a different kind of taste for this dish. So it is still possible to replace mango with lettuce but I would suggest just using plain lettuce without any other sauces. HTH

Hi Hugbear

I hv a qn to ask...does the green mango refer to 'unripe' mango or is it a different kind of mango? Please pardon my 'suakuness' :)

Hi, use the unriped mango because you want it really green and sour for the salad.
