7 Mango Recipes For Each Day Of The Week ft. California Walnuts

It’s not an Indian summer unless you have binged on your share of your favorite mango variety. While many of us like to relish mango plain and sliced, sometimes you just need something more than the plain ol’ fruit.

Often we think that the idea of combining fruits with meals isn’t a great idea! But the king of fruits, mango is one of those that tastes divine on and with anything. They are as versatile as our first-favourite food, California walnuts, the only tree nut that is an excellent source of plant-based omega-3 ALA. A handful (approx. 28g) of walnuts offers 2.5g of omega-3 ALA, 4g of protein, and 2g of fiber. Mild in flavour, and perfectly crunchy, California walnuts undergo stringent quality control measures from farm to market to ensure only the best produce for consumers.

Gear up for a total of seven recipes that combine mango and walnuts – so you can enjoy the season’s bounty every day of the week.
