Mango-Peach Tango

Hooray, our plums are finally ripe! I found this recipe for Mango-Peach Tango in the August Southern Living Magazine and thought it would be a perfect way to use up some of our fruit. We served it with Honey Lime Enchiladas.
Everyone at dinner agreed- it’s a keeper.

  • 1-2 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro


  1. Stir together first 3 ingredients in a large bowl until sugar dissolves.
  2. Add mangoes and next 4 ingredients, tossing to coat.
  3. Cover and chill 2 to 6 hours.

Recipe Notes

-I made this immediately before serving, chilling for 2-6 hours is not necessary, but allows flavors to blend.-You may slice or chop the fruit, I preferred it chopped.
