A Spring Salad
This was just an Everyday Food recipe that I didn't even make according to the recipe, but boy was it good! I made James a dinner that was mostly what I call "bland food" (and he calls "just right") so I had to toss in one zingy dish for my tastebuds. I'm sure you can look up the original recipe, but here's what I did. It was a great spring taste and Sammy liked it too (Zack was just medium about it).
Mango Cucumber Salad
2 small yellow mangoes, peeled, sliced off the seed, and chopped
1/2 of a medium cucumber, peeled, deseeded and chopped
few sprigs cilantro, minced
lime juice (half a juicy lime or all of a drier one)
2 t extra-virgin olive oil
Mix all ingredients and season lightly with salt and pepper.
