Arugula and Mango Salad

January 31, 2013


As a Holiday gift each year, my husbands partner get us the fruit by the month club through Harry and David.  I really truly love this gift and hope she never changes it up.  It actually helps me a lot, because I know what’s in season.  I’m assuming they send you what’s in season right?  This past month we got mangoes.  I love mango flavored things, like smoothies and yogurt, but I have never been a fan of the real thing.  I was skeptical to peel and slice it.  I was even more nervous to taste it.  I took the smallest matchstick sized piece and gave it a go.  My mouth tingled and danced for joy!  I then realized I never tasted a mango that was perfectly ripe.  I love Mangoes, go figure?  I have an extra one hidden in my fridge and I think I am going to cut it up now for my breakfast, Yum!!!
