Try this Mango Salad with Prawn and Fennel this Summer!  There’s nothing nicer than a Mango Salad – fresh, juicy Australian Mangoes served with ingredients that match perfectly.

Who doesn’t love a Mango?

We think Aussie Mangoes mean summer, the feeling of sunshine and the spray from the garden hose on your skin, kids laughing, the smell of barbeques, long light evenings serenaded by kookaburras and cicadas. The first bite of a mango that sends it’s sweet, sticky juice running down your face. Mmmmm!

We all know that Mango Salad with Prawns has been around for years but we’re loving the fresh and crunchy additions of fennel and the baby radishes in this recipe.  A modern twist on an old favourite.

If you’re planning your Summer Entertaining Menus, now’s the time to add in a Mango Salad or Two.

There are so many beautiful types of Australian Mangoes – we’re always spoilt for choice.  For any Mango Salad, we’d recommend a nice firm flesh Mango – like the Calypso Mango or the Kensington Pride Mango.

Wondering whether a Mango is ripe enough for your Mango Salad? Here’s a few tips from Australian Mangoes:

  • Don’t focus on colour. It is not the best indicator of ripeness.
  • Squeeze the mango gently. A ripe mango will give slightly.
  • Use your experience with produce such as peaches or avocados, which also become softer as they ripen.
  • Ripe mangoes will sometimes have a fruity aroma at their stem ends.
  • The pink blush and red colour that appears on some varieties is not an indicator of ripeness.
  • Always judge by feel.
