Sweet and Savory Mango

Sweet: The sweetness of a juicy mango makes it an obvious mix-in for a great dessert. After all, there’s a reason that Sticky Rice is a popular Thai street food! Prepare some Mango Sticky Rice the next time you need a quick sweet treat!

Savory: It’s no surprise that Mango – native to the tropics – is common in savory Caribbean and Asian dishes! Mango adds a touch of sweetness which will complement spicy peppers. Add a mango salsa will take your spicy tacos to the next level! Try this 5-minute Coconut Curry Mango Rice for an unforgettable blend of flavors!

Mango Herb Pairing

Along with tomatoes, mangos go well with cilantro. This peppery herb has a bit of a zing, complementing the sweetness from the juicy fruit. To sweeten up guacamole or Pico de Gallo, simply fold on some mango. Skip a step with our seasoned rice! Our Cilantro & Lime Jasmine Rice goes well in this Black Beans and Rice Mango Salad and would give an extra boost of flavor to our Spicy Mango Chicken as well!
