    Baby Kato's Note:

    I love mango & lime lemonade...this lovely dish, reminds me of it. A lovely addition to any meal. It's great for cleansing your pallet. This is also good served over lemon, orange or pineapple sherbet. Please note that the chilling time is included in cooking time.

      Wonderful mango dish! Loved the taste of it all, even though I did leave off the mint garnish! This is the kind of special, light dessert that I look forward to springing on dinner guest sometime! Thanks for sharing it! [Made & reviewed in Zaar Chef Alphabet Soup tag]
