With mango season heading our way, here are 12 irresistible savory and sweet recipes to help you get started!
Welcome to my first ever recipe roundup!
Growing up, I ate a lot, a lot of MANGOES! Mango is sweet and soft. They are perfect ending of any meal. When it comes to the best mango variety, I have to say it is the Manila mango from the Philippines. They are aromatic and out-of-this-world sweet! You have to try them if you ever get a chance.
Mangoes are starting to be in season. I have seen them in the grocery stores recently. Instead of eating mangoes raw, they can also be incorporated into many dishes too. If you are a mango lover like me, you will sure enjoy all the dishes right here.
