Sour Mango

Just by looking at it makes me drool. I like sour mango dipped in salt or salted fish. My husband says the thought of it makes him gag, but sour mango is commonly eaten in the Philippines. You can find green mangoes everywhere especially during the right season. I bought this from the nearby store but it tasted different from the green mango that I usually ate back home in the Philippines. I am craving it right now.

3 tablespoons of lemon juice
