Mango and Tomato Salsa
Mango wasn’t a fruit that I recall us ever eating as kids. I remember enjoying local seasonal fruit, especially ones we grew in our home garden.
Yet didn’t have exotic and tropical fruits very often. It wasn’t until I started travelling, and when mango was the local fruit – that I feel in mango love.
Since then I can confidently say it’s my favourite fruit, yet more often than not I simply eat them fresh. And yes, that is plural.
More often than not, I come by case sales on my favourite fruit.
So I’ve started making mango recipes such as this Blueberry Mango Smoothie.
