Thursday’s Side Dish: Mango Tango

When sweet meets tangy
Mangoes taste delicious and are an excellent source of fiber. Look for a pleasant smell, a red or yellow skin color, and softness when selecting a ripe fruit. Mangoes are known as “the king of fruit” all over the world. We’ve grilled ripe mangoes for a great summertime dessert. Broiling works, too. Squeeze a little lemon juice on each piece before cooking. Natural sugars will caramelize during the cooking process.


  1. Mangoes have more vitamin C than oranges.

  2. Three kids...three mango-faces...

  3. Mango ice cream. Yikes!
