Peel and cut the mango from around the core. Cut into large chunks, about the size of a loonie, and place in a bowl.

In a blender, add half of the pumpkin seeds and all of the spices. Blend until a fairly smooth powder. Remove from the blender and mix with remaining whole pumpkin seeds.

For the salad, fill a bowl with the mango mix once it has marinated. Top with a generous amount of your pumpkin seed mix and enjoy!
