Mangos.....ideas please!

I LOVE mangos and couldn't pass up a free case of nearly overripe ones (for free!) at the farmstand today. I know there are many ways to use them, I prefer not too many rich desserts but am open to any other suggestions you may have. Thank you!

  1. Hot sauce! Really ripe mangos, habeneros, mustard, and a few other ingredients will make one killer hot sauce. Search for Caribbean sauces or Inner Beauty to see if there is one that appeals to you.

      That inner beauty sound amazing! Thank you, that idea is right up my alley!

    2. A local restaurant here serves up fresh mango in a salad with avocado and seared rare tuna with a spicy vinaigrette dressing. I LOVE it.

      You could also make chutney to have with curries, braised meats, etc.


          Fresh mango lassi; I love it for breakfast!

          not too sweet, but very satifying-mango pudding

                  Too funny, right! I think I'll celebrate with a mango lassi for lunch.
