The Mango

With summer fast approaching, we have been dreaming about one of our favorite warm weather treats.  The Mango.

This sweet and succulent fruit has a wonderful flavor combination of peach and pineapple and adds a fresh tropical twist to cooking.  Here are some mango recipes we cannot resist.

Mango Salsa
2 cups mango, diced
1/2 cup pineapple, diced
1 cup red pepper, diced
1/2 cup red onion, diced
1/3 cup fresh cilantro, chopped
3 tbsp fresh lime juice
Combine all ingredients and mix well.  Cover and chill.  Serve with grilled chicken or fish.  Serves 6.

Prosciutto-wrapped Mango
Simple.  Simple.  Just peel and slice one mango.  Wrap each slice with prosciutto. Sweet, salty and elegant.

Mango Smoothie
1 mango, peeled and diced
1 small banana
1/2 cup vanilla yogurt
1 cup orange juice
6-8 ice cubes
Blend until smooth and serve chilled.
