They may be my favorite fruit at the moment. It is very hot these days and nothing is better than a cold mango. And very little needs to be done - I eat them as is, add some mint, sprinkle salt or chilli, or make salsa and of course smoothies.
I have a Chinese friend and she says according to Chinese medicine, mangoes are a 'hot' and not 'cold' food.
Have you ever tried Pineapple Mango Salsa (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PB7tWdSy_ds)? I'd never had before I tried this recipe - wow, is it good -- and it's beautiful! I love mangoes too! *Ü*

That looks delicious, thanks. I buy a whole box at asian stores (much cheaper) and some are not ripe - but those have a nice tangy sour taste that goes well with salt.

You are getting plenty of Vit E in those babies. I am getting great ones at the moment as well.
