Tomango salad

June 14, 2011

Author Notes: Inspired by Kitchen Butterfly's mango slaw, which is lovely, I decided to test out a favorite combination of mine, the mango with an heirloom tomato. This is a simple easy salad to make, which you can adjust to your preferences. It can be a great addition to a picnic.Sagegreen
