Shredded Mango and Coconut Chutney

Attractive and almost uncooked, this bold and assertive mango chutney is layered with intriguing sweet, tart and peppery flavors from coconut, orange and lime juices, dried fruits, fresh chilies and cilantro … and, of course, there's the sweet and tangy star of the chutney, fresh ripe red mangoes. I prepared this easy-to-make chunky chutney in preparation for a rice salad, but you can enjoy it with almost any other Indian meal, especially if there are other bold and assertive flavors on the plate. It's really very tasty on its own, too!

Gorgeous flavors. Did you use unripe mango? I'm going to hop into my copy of LKC to check out the original recipe.

I must get to the store, despite the snow. I want to make this and I have no mangos.
