Cool, sweet and spicy, a perfect go-to, add-on recipe for the hot grilling days ahead. Mangoes are a natural pairing for coconut. Onion, sweet and hot peppers, fresh ginger and plenty of garlic add the heat. Coconut adds the crunch and a hint of coconut oil adds the dressing.
Serve with grilled chicken or fish. Add to a steaming pot of jasmine rice. Add as a tropical garnish to salmon burger. It's summer. . . with lighter fare, anything goes. —Vivian Henoch
