Everybody knows now that the undisputed king of mangoes is the Indian Alphonso. It is intensely sweet and has an unbeatable perfumed aroma. I’d go as far as saying that you haven’t tasted a real mango until you’ve tried an Alphonso (and nobody is paying me for this). The season, though, is very short – mid-April to the end of May – so try to prepare this salad then. Flaked coconut is available online at www.juliangraves.com.
