Mango red pepper salad

One of the first signs that spring is in the air is the arrival of champagne mangoes in the market. The champagne or ataulfo mango is a variety from Mexico. It is small, kidney shaped and yellow. This variety has the best texture and flavor available outside of the tropics.

This salad brings back memories of trips to Toronto and a wonderful little restaurant called Herb. The combination of roasted red peppers and mango always stuck with me. This is my version many years later.
