September 5 -September 11
Considering today was Labor Day and many people spent the day trying to soak up as much summer as possible before it dissipates into Fall, we decided to feature one last reminder of hot summer days. allrecipes.com is the source of this week’s recipe again, but the subject is refreshing and sweet. We’ve used this mousse as a palate cleanser and side dish for brunch in the past. There isn’t a ton of seasoning or manipulation required for this recipe, allowing for the character and freshness of each ingredient to come through. I hope you enjoy the mango mousse as a unique side dish or garnish to fish and chicken, or as a stand-alone dessert.
