Fun Facts About Mangoes

Mangoes are related to cashews and pistachios and although I chose to add peanuts to this recipe for some crunch, cashews or pistachios would also be great alternatives to top your mango salad!

The ripeness of mangoes is not judged by color but by giving them a squeeze, if a mango is ripe it will have a little give.

Although Oranges are more well known for their Vitamin C, Mangoes are an excellent source of Vitamin C.
