My number one favorite fruit is a mango (Cherries come next, then guavas…). Laurie from Mediterranean Cooking in Alaska recently featured a Mango and Feta Salad on her blog. What an excellent salad for the summer. The mango and basil taste cool and sweet, while the feta cheese lends a salty taste. It’s a winning combination and so easy to throw together. I’ve made this salad several times now. I don’t think I’ll ever get tired of it. Thanks, Laurie!
