If you're a fan of mangos, you probably already know that August is the peak season for the tasty tropical fruit. To celebrate, The Westin Resort & Spa in Los Cabos have dedicated the entire month to celebrate by hosting their very own Mango Festival. Thanks to Executive Chef Manuel Peruyero's culinary skills, several new food and cocktail recipes have been added to the menu, each one showcasing the juicy fruit.
If you can't get to the resort in time, their Facebook page will be posting their favorite mango recipes all throughout the month. You don't have to wait for Chef Manuel Peruyero's Mango Salad recipe though because we've got it for you right here!

Peel and cut the mango into bite-size pieces. Wash the arugula. Clean and wash the frisse. Roast the pumpkin seeds in a pan; once they are roasted, mix in the Tajin seasoning. Clean the fennel and put into cold water. Cut the cheese into bite-size pieces.
Mix the four dressing ingredients together, finishing with salt and pepper to taste. Arrange the mango and cheese on the plate and surround with fennel, arugula and frisse. Top with the dressing and finish with the roasted, seasoned pumpkin seeds.
