With warmer weather upon us, it’is time to whip up delicious recipes using one of the season's favourite fruit, mangoes.

While we love it best plain and sliced, and in smoothies and traditional chutneys, the flavourful fruit can add that extra punch to a lot of other recipes.

Adding a dash of walnuts can pack these dishes with multiple nutritional and health benefits.
