Food of the Month Club: May

This month's Food of the Month is one of my all-time favorite fruits.  On the outside, this fruit can vary in color from red, to green, to yellow, and orange.  But on the inside, the color is almost always the same....a deep golden yellow.

Dramatic drumroll, please.....

The Food of the Month for May is....MANGOES!!!

Now I realize that mangoes may not be in season everywhere, so it's perfectly acceptable if you use canned or frozen mangoes.

I tend to lean toward sweeter recipes when it comes to mangoes, but I've been wanting to experiment with more savory dishes.  What about you?  How do you like to use mangoes?

I can't wait to see what everyone comes up with.

  1. Mangos are my favorite! Is it mangoes or is it mangos??? We were editing our cookbook and this plural is tricky ;) Either way count on something from us! Here are a couple of my favs!

    Mango, Jicama, and Cucumber Salad:


    Mango Coconut Sorbet:

    1. So glad you'll be joining the fun! :) (Mango, Jicama & Cucumber salad is my favorite!)

      As for the plural spelling, it is kind of tricky. I have to think about it for a little when I'm writing. Then I remember my days as an ESL teacher: "mangoes" in English, and "mangos" in Spanish. :)

  2. Yes, MANGO! I am definitely IN.

  3. We love mangoes in Peru, and use them a lot, specially in desserts, drinks and just plain. They are so sweet and juicy. We are in!!!

  4. Hi Leslie, did you get my email with my Mango recipe?
    All the best.

  5. I'd definitely go with sweet rather than savory for any fruit (what most people think of as fruit; not stuff like tomatoes and avocados).
