Here in South Florida mangoes are the happening fruit. They are falling from trees everywhere, including our own backyard. Whether you like to peel them and eat them over the sink, cut them in half and scoop them out, (our favorite way) slice them or dice them, they are at their sweetest right about NOW. They are awesome refrigerated, grilled (yum) or just the way they are! You can use them in smoothies or as topping for cereals and salads, or make them into a mango salsa. A cup of mango is just 100 calories, fat free, cholesterol free, sodium free and supplies you with 3 grams of fiber. That same one cup provides 100% of our daily Vitamin C requirement!
My experience is that mangoes are at their best when they have JUST fallen from a tree. Be careful when you pick them in a store. They should be slightly soft to the touch or the flavor may be off, which gives mangoes a bad rap.
