Summer is a great time to add fresh tropical fruits to your meals. I love mango added to anything- smoothies, salads, and meat. I love recipes like this that are summery, sweet, easy, and healthy. The recipe listed below is great alone or served on top of a piece of lean protein like grilled chicken or fish. Yummy!
