Mango is one of my all time favorite fruits. I love them in my smoothies in the morning. Or as a quick snack in the afternoon. Now, I added them into my cucumber salad and it’s a great addition to my dinner menu too!

It takes practically no time to prepare this salad, which means it’s a great addition to any backyard BBQ gathering. But let’s talk flavors first. The dressing is loaded with asian flavors: soy sauce, honey, sesame oil, cilantro, chili oil… I love these flavors all together!

For those who loathe cilantro, I’m sorry, but this salad is just not the same without it. It was lacking when I first made it without cilantro, so it’s a must!

Chili oil. What is that? Well, chili oil is typically a vegetable oil, infused with chili pepper. It’s a spicy condiment, common in Chinese cuisine. Mine was quite spicy, so just a little bit goes a long way.

To make the salad, julienne the mango and cucumber, and then mix them with cilantro and dressing. The salad gets better as it sits for a little bit, so the flavors get a chance to mingle.

  4. There are people out there that don’t like cilantro???  It’s my favorite herb to cook with, and I’ve never thought of putting together cucumber and mango, but I’m going to do it this week!  I have some Mahi Mahi that I can cook to go with this salad.  YUMMM!
