Mango Cucumber Salad Recipe

I know, don’t freak. That really *does* say recipe up there in the title. I promise I didn’t actually do any REAL cooking (because that would break my streak of eating out 7 days a week). I just chopped some stuff and threw it in a bowl. But my family actually enjoyed it, so I thought I would share.


10-12 ounces of Grape or Cherry Tomatoes

2-3 Cucumbers

2 Mangoes

1/2 Red Onion

2-3 ounces crumbled Feta Cheese

2-4 tablespoons Lime Vinaigrette Salad Dressing of your choice




P.S. This is the proper way to cut a mango. Slice in half, and make a checkerboard with your knife. Then cut the cubes off the peel.




Simple. Chop all the things mentioned above. Put in a big bowl. Mix. Adjust the amounts to your taste.

It’s probably good I am not a food blogger.

But seriously. I’m not kidding. Yum.

    That sounds (and looks) DEEEELICIOUS!! Love.

    I would add that you should cut from the stem at the top downwards, so you’re cutting WITH the grain of the mango, not against it. 😉

    Meh, cut cucumbers any which way you like. Never had a problem with them. lol

    Mangoes, however, will catch on your knife and become a juicy mess if you cut them the wrong way.

    Usually “stem side” is the larger side (what I’d call the “top” — cut from the top down to the bottom), with the “bottom” being the pointier, more narrow side.

    Wow, great pix too! Were you actually able to eat it after the photo shoot? No spray adhesive holding stuff together, toothpicks propping things up…?

    The “wow” wasn’t because I was surprised that the photos were great, I expect that, it was more directed at the cooking thing. 🙂
