Mangos: Popular Worldwide, Available Around The Corner (NAPSA) - Would you like an exotic, tropical vacation to a sun-drenched paradise but don't have the time or money? Take a mini-vacation in your own kitchen with the tropical taste of mango.
Besides delectable flavor, mangos also offer nutrition benefits. One cup of cubed mango provides an excellent source of vitamin C and a good source of vitamin A, two vitamins often lacking in American diets.
Mangos are available year-round so you can bring home a sunny taste of the tropics anytime. They're perfect for every meal and easy to prepare. Try them cubed for breakfast or as a simple snack. At lunch or dinner, mango can enhance pork, chicken or fish entrees, and many elegant, flavorful desserts feature mango.

With narrow side facing up, slice mango on each side of pit to remove "cheeks." With a knife, crisscross cheeks to make small cubes but do not cut through skin; press skin so cut side pops outward; cut or scrape off cubes. Peel center section; cut off mango pieces. Repeat this process with second mango.
Set aside 3 cups mango cubes; place 1 cup of trimmings and smaller pieces in a food processor or blender and puree.
In a small bowl, whisk together mango puree, vegetable oil, lime juice, cilantro and pepper.
In a large bowl, toss mixed greens, mango cubes, turkey, cucumber and tomatoes with mango dressing.
