Looking for a fresh and healthy Mexican food, fruit salad side dish? Got a couple of mango sitting around on your kitchen counter? This mango fruit salad is so easy to make and so easy to love.
Any variety of mango will do. I used Champagne Mangos because Whole Foods has had a truck load at a good price over the last few days. Not sure what to do? How about a super easy mango salad. Try this: pit, peel, sliver, place in a bowl and gently toss with olive oil. Plate and top with diced jalapeno pepper, slivered sweet onions. Dress with a generous amount of ground black pepper, squeeze lime juice over all and sprinkle with salt.
Champagne Mangoes are those beautiful smaller mangoes with bright yellow flesh. They’re native to Mexico and in season in February.
Do you find mangos hard to slice? I sure do, having mangled many a mango. I found good instructions over at Mango.org if you’re needing a refresher. I also have purchased a mango slicer. It works great and I’ve included an affiliate link if you’re interested.
