“This salad is beautifully presented at the table in layers. When it is time to serve, toss and ensure each piece of fruit is coated with mango dressing. Update: I used 2 mangoes and ended up with a little more sauce than it needed, but it was both beautiful and tasty. Next time I will only use half of the ginger. Would have been better if it were more subtle.”
