These were just ok. The pork had nice flavor from the grill, but it was lacking something. Also, once assembled, they fell apart at first bite. It would be difficult to serve these neatly to company. I made the salad exactly as directed except for adding one extra jalapeno pepper. It definitely needed something. After trying mine, i also added sraracha in attempt to spice it up. In all, this just wasn't worth it. There are so many better recipes out there. This one needs tweaking if i were to ever make it again.

My mouth is singing! The pork and mango salsa individually had great flavor and worked perfectly together. My husband is not a fan of lettuce-wrapped anything so I'll also serve with warmed flour tortillas next time. I used a ripe mango and enjoyed the sweetness to offset the heat of the red pepper and jalapeno. Would definitely make this as an appetizer course with guests or enjoy as a light dinner with family.

I am a huge fan of green mangoes, and this was a delicious, light lunch. I followed the recipe exactly as printed; it was not too much work since I used minced ginger and garlic and pre-shredded carrot.

my boyfriend and i love this recipe! great combination of flavors and a nice alternative to a traditional salad. have to agree with the other comments on the structural integrity -- we've decided it's easier to eat as a salad, not as lettuce cups. will continue to make this dish again and again.

Meh. Flavor was fine, though not very spicy at all, despite the jalapeno and red pepper. But this belongs squarely in the "too much effort for what it is" category. As noted by another reviewer, the structural integrity was non-existent.

My husband and I both loved this. It is perfect for summer, light and spicy! I used some of the leftovers to make sandwiches, I used fat free plain yogurt on the bread and topped with lettuce leafs, the carrot mango mixture, pork, a thick slice of tomato and the mung beans and my husband was seriously raving about the sandwich. I don''t think it is impressive enough for company, but we'll definitely make it a summer time weeknight staple.
