Spicy Mango & Lime Salad

Summer is just around the corner and all the beautiful produce that’s hitting the market has me beyond exciting. I’m a huge fan of simple honest fresh food. One of the things I’ll be focusing on this summer is fast fresh and heathy. I’m going to try to avoid my oven as much as possible and embrace the 500 million different ways you can make “salad”. For so many people when they hear the word salad they think of iceberg lettuce, some hothouse tomatoes, and a bottle of salad dressing that’s full of enough sugar and preservatives to withstand Armageddon. I’d like to change that. I’m starting with Spicy Mango & Lime Salad! Because seriously, I’m obsessed with mangos. Mangos and I have a love affair. It’s been going on for years. They’re amazing!

Instructions
  1. Let's start with the best mango hack in the world (at least in my humble opinion). Grab a glass, a knife, and your mango. Make two slices (avoiding the pit) and then take one mango slice in hand and your glass in the other. Slip the glass just inside the skin and there you have it...mango flesh in your glass and not all over the floor. Here's a quick video from the people over at Saveur:
  2. Easy, right? Now, that you have your mango slices, place them on a plate and get ready for another easy step. Simply, grab a lime, roll it between your palm and the counter (helps to get the juice out) a few times, then slice off a few thin slices and squeeze some of the lime juice over the mango slices. Sprinkle with some red pepper flakes and serve.

This might be the easiest salad I’ve ever made. Making it perfect for mango-aholics like me to eat mangoes every single day until we start turning orange. Is that possible? Can you OD on mangos? Oh, I really hope not. I would cry.

What’s your favorite way to eat mangos?
Cheers Suz
