sweet mangoes in their prime: ideas for mango salads and salsa recipes?

prima Jun 9, 2011 08:36 AM

I've made some mango/avocado/cilantro/lime salads and salsas, as well as a mango/strawberry/mint/lime fruit salad.

What other mango salads or salsas do you like to make with ripe, sweet mangoes when they're at their prime?

    My favourite is mango and red pepper salad. I add coriander, lime juice, a bit of honey. A few basil leaves are also good. Or mango and red pepper with chili flakes, minced ginger, lime juice & bit of sugar!

        Nice, hope you like it! I swear I could eat it every day, if only there were always nice ripe mangoes lying around.

          Thai-ish steak salad: lettuce, green onions, cilantro, red pepper (bell or hot) and mango with an Asian inspired dressing and then sliced grilled steak on top. I've made this with a simple fish sauce/lime juice dressing as well as with a soy/ginger dressing. Both work well.
