Spicy Mango and Avocado Salad

Spicy Mango and Avocado Salad
I've had this recipe for a long time before I dared to try it, although I have such an exotic ingredient as a fish sauce in my fridge (well, it was unopened, but still, I had it). Mango is one of my favorite fruits and I adore avocado, but mixing them with the addition of mint and fish sauce sounded too much even for my you-never know-it might be tasty-attempts. 
Well, I must say. this is my favorite salad know. Its spicy taste is absolutely unexpected, surprising, a burst of tastes in a plate. 
Every single ingredient has its place in the recipe and the taste sends me far away to places with weird animals, palms and people I've never met before. Thank you, Food Opera.
