…and pair with Raincoast Crisps from Leslie Stowe. I get them at Whole Foods but if you can’t find them at a market near you, you can have them delivered to your door. (affiliate links)

Mangos are my favorite fruit. When in season, I eat them often and am always looking for new ways to use them.

 Let’s Talk Goat Cheese…

Always use a good quality goat cheese. I get mine in the gourmet cheese section at Whole Foods Market. It’s best to use the kind they cut from a log so you have a flat round disk. But if you can’t find it, no worries because goat cheese is so soft you can pretty much mold it into a disc shape with your hands.
