Recipe Comments & Reviews

I discovered this recipe about 8 years ago and fell in love at first bite. It combines the sweet of the mangos, the tangy of the raspberries and the southwest kick of cilantro; Amazing flavor combination. I couldn't find my recipe card and had to find it online to cook for father's day. This is my husband's favorite too. I just can't say enough about how much we love it.
I have just one question...why can't I give this recipe like 100 stars. Five simply doesn't do it justice. If you have never tried this recipe then you must do it now! Stop what you are doing, make a trip to the grocery store and fix up this fantastic feast. You truly do feel like you are on vacation while dining on this authentic island dish in the comfort of your kitchen.
