One of my favorite things about summer is all the fresh fruit. Let me tell you, if you're a tropical kinda girl like me, then Texas is one of the best places to get that fresh fruit. The mangos and pineapples are definitely an improvement over those I used to get back in Seattle. The mangos in particular are so ripe that sometimes I just eat them like an apple! Peel and all! Trust me, the peel is surprisingly sweet. And pineapples...not only do they look AWESOME, but I can remember many a time where I made my mouth numb from eating too much...
I love combining sweet, fruity flavors like mango with savory flavors. They contrast and compliment each other perfectly. This is a great summer dish! It's light, colorful, and fresh. What screams summer more than that?
