Cucumber Mango Salad Recipe
- 1 cup chopped mango cheeks
- 2 cups diced cucumber
- 2 cups assorted greens I used snowpeas, finely sliced and a bit of baby spinach
- 1 cup fresh coriander, flat leaf parsley and mint combined – whatever ratio you like the best
- 1/2 baby purple onion, chopped into fine discs or tiny dice
- 1 avocado, roughly cubed
- 15 ml lemon juice
- 2 tbsp macadamia oil
- celtic sea salt to taste
Throw it all together in a bowl. Mix through with your hands to move the avocado, macadamia oil and lemon juice through the other ingredients nicely – it’s a good hand treatment while you’re at it!
You’re done. Truly. That’s it. In this pic, I had the tail end of a purple carrot left, so that ended up in there too (just in case anyone was wondering!)
This is a heavenly sister to a steamed white fish with a little coriander and ginger. It’s 10 at night as I write this, and I’m hungry!!
