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.
