This salad satisfies in the summer when mangoes are at their sweetest and our bodies are craving cold, crunchy, and hydrating fruits and veggies! The smoky sesame oil pairs beautifully with the bright mango and sharp bite of the red onion, and the fresh mint and cilantro bring it all together.

    really tasty. I doubled the recipe and ended up adding another lime to the dressing as well as 1 tsp of sugar. Also added one finely diced jalapeno.
