The savory treatment of fruit in this salad is a welcome relief from cloying refreshments. The lime and smoked flavors harmonize incredibly well. If you are a mango lover, you will make this again and again.


4 servings

Serving size

¼ recipe


4 cups (660 grams) mangos, peeled, pitted, and sliced into cubes

1 lime, juiced

2 tablespoons pumpkin seeds

2 tablespoons coconut chips

2 tablespoons cilantro leaves

½ teaspoon smoked paprika

⅛ teaspoon sea salt (optional)


  1. Slice mango from top to bottom, along the pit. Score with a paring knife, in a cross-hatch pattern. Invert the skin to reveal square mango cubes.
  2. Slice away the mango cubes onto a plate. Repeat with 2nd side of mango and the 2nd mango.
  3. Slice along the sides of the pit, and cube as much of this side fruit and place on the plate.
  4. Arrange mango in an attractive layer on a serving platter or 4 individual serving plates.
  5. Squeeze lime juice over all the mango.
  6. Sprinkle salt (if using) on all the mango.
  7. Sprinkle the pumpkin seeds and coconut ships attractively over the mango.
  8. Arrange the cilantro leaves attractively on top.
  9. Dust with the smoked paprika. Serve immediately.

Cooking Tip

Sometimes you just want to peel a mango. The easiest way to remove the mango skin is to cut off the end to make a flat base and stand it up. With a sharp knife, start at the top and make clean slices down the sides, just under the peel, to the base. Go all the way around and voila – your mango is peeled.
