For those of us in the Northern Hemisphere, spring is officially here. Things are warming up and we get to enjoy delicious summer fruits and lighter meals again. Here is a recipe that incorporates my favorite summer fruit – mangoes – in a light, refreshing, and healthy salsa. This fruity salad is ideal for a warm spring or summer lunch and also works as a dinner when paired with grilled chicken or a piece of pan-seared salmon.
