Thanks in part to a growing interest in global cuisine, fresh mangos are available year-round in most supermarkets. Juicy and delicious, the mango is an orange-fleshed fruit with a peachy-pineapple flavor. Any time of year is the perfect time to add a sunny splash of tropical mango to fruit salads, salsas, drinks and desserts.
Keep mangos on hand to brighten up smoothies and shakes or blend into decadent cream pies, but don’t limit this versatile fruit to desserts! Need a fresh side to serve with spicy dishes? Chopped mango adds sweet flavor to tacos and other Mexican recipes. (It’s delicious with BBQ or pork chops, too!) Mix mango with cream cheese for an easy appetizer spread, or scatter chopped mango on salad entrées for a colorful, flavorful topping. The possibilities are endless.
