"I came up with this one night for a quick lasagna accompaniment. A quick trip to the garden for the mint added the crowning touch. Very good, very quick, very adaptable. Yummy for a summer barbeque, as a relish, or as a side dish to go along with a spicy entree." — Karen Burke-Johnson

peeled, diced ripe mango
chopped fresh pineapple
chopped fresh mint
We loved this! I did use some chopped chocolate mint from my garden & I also mixed up a little pineapple juice w/ honey to use as a light dressing & I highly recommend it....it really helped bind the flavors of the salad together. I served this w/ leftover Bow Tie Pasta with Sausage and Sweet Peppers (from this site).
I honestly did not care for this recipe at all. It would have been fine without the mint. If you walk into the produce section and just take a big whiff with your mouth open, you'll know what this salad tasted like. It was bland - the texture felt awkward and unsatisfying and again, the mint, just overpowered everything else - and I only used three leaves... I couldn't imagine using anymore. This is definitely not going in my recipe book. Sorry.
Very tasty! Everyone loved it, including my skeptical husband. Will totally make again!
Nice taste of the tropics
This is a nice variation on summer fruits. Unfortunately, I couldn't find any fresh flaked coconut, and was sure I had dried coconut flakes at home, but didn't so, we did this without coconut. While still yummy, I've had mango with fresh coconut before and it's divine, so I know this would have been better with the coconut.
I did IMVINTAGE's dressing, and liked it - it made everything a little stickier and more salad like.
So easy and fresh tasting. My husband is a mango nut. He asked me to make it again after only a couple of days. I took it to a party and everyone wanted the recipe. I made it the night before. That gives the dried cranberries a chance to plump. I did not add a dressing as some of the reviewers suggested. The juices from the mango and pineapple were enough. It's great to have a simple component to your meal. That gives you more time if you are making something fussy.
We really like this salad. Fresh and light.
Since I had so much mint in my garden I tried this, it was great a nice summer change.
