Shrimp & Mango Salad

It’s mango season, my favorite fruit,  and I love creating new recipes every year with this delicious fruit. It’s essential to use the small yellow mango for the vinaigrette. These mangos are called many names, including honey, champagne, or ataulfo.

This salad is great for meal prep, and you can get 4 large servings from this recipe. During mango season, I always have the mango vinaigrette made in my refrigerator.
