This fresh and delicious salad is a favorite of mine to bring to parties and potlucks. It's great for a side dish, but is also filling enough on it's own. I can never get enough mangoes, and this is a great way to use them! My mom found this recipe in a magazine years ago, and my family has made it a lot since then. The original recipe called for olive oil, but it doesn't need any - just add in some more of the salsa if you need to! We've tried this with wild rice in place of the brown rice, which is fun as well.
