I think the buffet used the most common green/red mangoes, but I much prefer the yellow ones. We call them Ataulfo here, but I think they have other names for these too. Sometimes mangoes can be sour so try to make this salad when they're in season. Check out this site to see how many varieties there are in Hawaii. Amazing!
Normally I take a regular carrot and use a vegetable peeler to create ribbons, but I only had baby carrots this time, so I just sliced them thinly.
If you like this salad, you'll probably also like my Carrot and Zucchini Ribbon Salad.
