Mangoes from my tree are still green but the ripe ones are beginning to flood the markets now. Soon it’s going to be mango-this and mango-that but the first ones that you taste are special. Like the salad I made the other day with carrots, cucumber, tomatoes, mint and pieces of mango. the dressing was a mix of salt, sugar, pepper, and olive oil.
And our weather is just right for sweet and sour raw mango chutney. Freshly grated raw mango mixed with salt, sugar, chopped green chillies, and mint! The taste is most refreshing! Especially on one of our humid afternoons when you long for rain….
