Salads and Soups

Thai Green Mango and Pineapple Salad

Today’s recipe was inspired by… My favorite blog? A trip to a new restaurant? The latest foodie trend?

Well, no.  It was inspired by a really big trip to Costco.  More specifically, what do you with a boxful of greenish mangoes and an enormous pineapple?  In my case, you make a really delicious Thai-inspired salad.

And this is what happens when you really love the recipe but don’t have any good photos.  You go to PicMonkey and fool around for awhile. I call this one Still Life with Green Mangoes.
