  1. Raw Mango - 2 medium sized (mangoes that are not too sour and  turning ripe but still firm taste best)
  2. Shallots - 2

  4. Red bell pepper or Carrots -  2 tbsp Julienned  
  5. Basil - 4 leaves torn
  6. Roasted peanuts or cashews - handful
  7. sugar OR Honey- 1/2 tsp (**I did not use as the mango was sweet and sour)
