Amazing Mango Recipes

collage of mango recipes.

When it’s mango season and the fruit is practically falling from the trees, it’s time to get busy with these incredible mango recipes that span the day from breakfast to mango salads for lunch, to savory mango dinner ideas. You’ll also love the mango salsas, jams, syrups and hot sauces to perk up your favorite foods.

Let’s get started.

How many types of mangoes are there?

There are nearly 300 different types of mangoes in the world. Grown in tropical climates like India, Asia, South America, Mexico and the Caribbean, this tropical fruit is ubiquitous when they’re ripe.

I would know. Living in South Florida, most people have a tropical mango tree growing in their yards… and if you don’t have one, I guarantee your neighbor does.

From Kent to Keitt, Julie to Tommy Atkins and Champagne varieties, mangoes are harvested year round throughout the world. If they’re not ripe in your area, they’ll be flying them in from some other region of the world.

They’re so prolific, you need to have an armory of mango recipes at your disposal. This mango chicken salad recipe is one of our lunchtime favorites, but that’s just the tip of the iceberg.

Here are 56 mango recipe ideas for everything from breakfast and drinks to salads, salsas and main courses. Grab a note pad and pen to jot down your favorites.

Each one is transformative in whatever you're using them for.
