I'm sure there's more ways than salsa, ice cream and pie to use mango. What's your favorite?

MANGO FETA DIP W/WALNUTS (about 3 1/2 cups)
1 cup low-fat yogurt, drained
1/2 cup walnuts
1/2 cup cilantro leaves
1 cup ripe mango, finely diced
6 oz feta
1 tsp lime zest
1 TBL lemon juice

Preheat oven to 350. Toast the walnuts for about 5-6 minutes. Remove from oven & cool. Crush well. (You can also toast them in a dry skillet on the stove-top but watch they don't burn & stir frequently.)
Place the yogurt well in a colander lined with cheesecloth or use a fine strainer. In a processor blend all the ingredients w/the yogurt except the walnuts. Transfer to a serving bowl & fold in the nuts.~~

Dash of allspice
1 egg
1 tsp vanilla
1/4 cup water
2 cups finely chopped mango
1/2 tsp freshly grated ginger
Vegetable oil for frying
Granulated sugar for topping

Sift the dry ingredients together. Whisk together the egg, vanilla & water & add to the dry ingredients. (You may need to add more water to the mixture & if so, add a TBL at a time.) Fold in the mango & ginger until well moistened. Drop by large spoonfuls into the hot fat, frying until golden. Drain on papaer towels & then dust w/sugar & serve at once.~~

Wow! what a collection! Thank you so much. The fritters reminded me of the time I spent in the Bahamas - EVERYthing got fried in coconut oil.
