Mango & Mint Appetizer

I know what I want in a Summer appetizer recipe. I want something:
  • that tastes delicious
  • that looks beautiful
  • that is easy to make
  • that no one has ever tried before
I created these appetizer skewers for a "Cuban theme" party a few years ago and they were devoured on the spot! I have relied on them for "parties on the deck" ever since. Trust me, the flavors are delicious together.
Mango & Mint skewers

1 jar (24 oz) of Del Monte mango
1 container of fresh mozzarella balls
1 package (8 oz) hard salami
fresh mint leaves
wooden skewers

Cut each mango section into chunks.
Cut each mozzarella ball in half.
Cut 2 long strips of salami (about an inch wide) from each slice.
Wash mint leaves.

Thread one end of salami strip onto skewer, then thread on mango, mozzarella, one mint leaf and then finish by threading on the other end of salami strip. Chill until serving.

This sounds really good!! Unfortunately I have the hardest time picking a ripe Mango. Any suggestions?

Oh, Lilly, you want a JAR of mango spears. Makes the whole recipe super easy - and the mango experts did the hard part (choosing, peeling & slicing!). Enjoy!

Sounds a lot easier than trying to guess LOL thanks for the tip Anne!!
