Mango and red onion salad says summer is here and we’re so glad. Mangoes are one of summers highlights in the food arena. Kensington Pride mangoes, here in Australia, are the best all round mango for flavour and aroma. This salad is super simple to prepare, but it totally needs full flavoured mangoes to deliver.

Red onions

Red onions bring a lot to this salad with their gentle pickling in the vinegar and sugar which then becomes the dressing for the mangoes. Too easy! Slice onions as thin as you can or use a mandolin for super thin and evenly sliced onions.

Slicing mangoes

Peel your mangoes with a sharp knife and slice flesh into thin slices.
