Grilled Mangoes with Herb Dressing

Grilled Mangoes are a summer treat

Grilled mangoes are a terrific fruit to pair with the spicy kick that jalapenos bring to a dish. Cilantro is high in antioxidants and fiber, bringing a fresh taste to anything.

2 mangoes, peeled, pitted, and sliced into 1/4-inch slices
3 jalapeno peppers
1 tablespoon coarsely chopped cilantro
1 tablespoon coarsely chopped shallots
½ tsp. garlic, minced
2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

Prepare a stove-top griddle or outdoor grill for mangoes. Meanwhile, in a nonstick saucepan, roast the jalapenos over high heat until the skins char. Turn the heat off, cover the pan, and set aside for 5 minutes. Peel the cooled jalapenos and remove the stems. Slice lengthwise and, over a small bowl, scrape out seeds and discard while allowing the juices to collect in the bowl.

Add the cilantro, shallots, lemon juice, and salt and pepper to the bowl and whisk to combine. Whisk in the olive oil.

Grill mangoes two minutes on each side and transfer to serving dish. Drizzle jalapeno dressing over grilled mangoes and serve immediately.
