What to Do With All These Mangoes? Mango and Avocado Salad by Chef Aaron Johnson of OB House (Photos)

We have the most amazing winters, ever. We have beautiful beaches. We have around 250 days of sun per year.

Overall, living in South Florida has a ton of perks, but one of the most exciting aspects of living in the subtropics is mango season. Unless, of course, you're allergic -- if so, we feel sorry for you.

We wait all year for that glorious fruit to flower, bud, and grow. There's nothing like the sweet taste of the season's first mango.

A week later, it's in your smoothies, on your pancakes, in your mojitos, your salsa, and whatever else you can pull out of your hat. After a while, however, you're wondering what the heck do I do with all of these damned mangoes.
