Mango Cucumber Salad

Fresh, tangy salad perfect for summer entertaining on the side of ham!

You Will Need:

  • diced mango
  • diced cucumber
  • diced red onion
  • fresh coriander (or mint!)
  • lime juice
  • rice vinegar
  • maple syrup or white sugar
  • salt
  • black pepper
  • crushed red pepper
  • mild olive oil

For a side salad, cut the mango and cucumber into 1-inch chunks. Or, if you’re planning to eat it as a salsa, dice both ingredients into smaller pieces.

If you haven’t already, juice the lime. You’ll need about half a lime, but feel free to add more or less, depending on your taste buds.

In a small bowl, combine the lime juice, rice vinegar, sweetener, salt, black pepper, crushed red pepper, and olive oil. Whisk well.

If you’re not a fan of spicy notes, feel free to skip the crushed red pepper.

In a large bowl, combine the diced mango, cucumber, red onion, and chopped coriander.

Add the dressing, then toss well until combined.

Taste the salad. Add more lime juice, rice vinegar, cilantro, sweetener, and/or spices, if necessary. Serve immediately or chilled.

If you have leftovers, store it in the refrigerator in a covered, air-tight container. Eat within 3 days.
