If you can’t find under-ripe mangos for this green mango salad recipe, I’ve often made this with Champagne mangos.
Champagne Mangoes are those beautiful smaller mangoes with bright yellow flesh. They’re native to Mexico and in season in February. But this recipe that I found over at Food and Wine suggests using green mangos which are under-ripe fruit.
