    Do Mangoes Turn Brown?

    I posted this question on another thread, but thought it might get lost in there:

    Can I make this salad ahead of time (except the greens, obviously), or will the mango turn brown? Thanks!

    Mangos don't turn brown, in my experience, but they do fade a little (to yellow) about 12 hours after being cut. They also can get slimy in the fridge overnight if there is salt in the vinaigrette. So I think you could make this a couple hours ahead with no problems at all, and a day ahead with a slight decline. Although the overnight sit in the fridge would intensify the flavors, so.....

    A woman made this for our last cooking club dinner, and it was fine. She did make it ahead of time, and it sat out for a while before we ate. (It was very good, btw).
