Summer is a month I used to look forward to as a child. The air smelt different, the weather got warm, schools were closed, my cousins were there to play with and wherever one turned you would see carts or baskets of Mangoes. The sweet smell used to make me want to eat it for breakfast, dinner and lunch. I could not wait to finish my curd rice to get my share of the mangoes.
This month there are a lot of food events focusing on summer and seasonal fruits. I am sending in my mango fruit salad that can be served as an elegant summer dessert at the end of a meal, at breakfast or a snack to cool off at any time. Takes less than 10 minutes to prepare and is one healthy salad.
