16 of Our Best Mango Recipes

We love this sweet, juicy, vibrantly colorful fruit

Sweet, juicy, vibrantly colorful, and a little bit messy, mangoes are one of our favorite fruits. Edible at most stages of ripeness, their flavor shifts dramatically as they soften. These recipes celebrate the remarkably broad spectrum of mango-based dishes—whether they're eaten while still green in a Thai salad, baked into a bread, or pureed into a refreshing cocktail, mangos have a bright, tropical flavor that can't be beat. For all of these dishes and more, check out our collection of awesome mango recipes.
