Cucumber Mango Salad

2 ingredients and a 1 minute dressing - that is my kind of recipe. So simple but when you take a bite, WOW! How have I not made this 100 times already? 

Mangoes are in season right now, so you can buy them for a lot less than during the off-season and they taste so much better. We love them, but I won't buy them during the fall and winter, because they just don't taste good and I can't spend a fortune on food that just doesn't taste good. 

So pick up a couple Mangoes on sale and grab a cucumber while you're there and this salad is practically made already. 

Ingredients : 

1 medium mango 
1 medium cucumber 
¼ cup rice vinegar 
2 Tbsp white sugar 
⅛ tsp salt 
⅛ tsp red pepper flakes 


Wash the cucumber well to remove wax or other residue. Slice the cucumber.

Cut the mango into slices.

In a small bowl, prepare the dressing. Combine the rice vinegar, sugar, salt and red pepper flakes. Stir until the sugar is completely dissolved.

In a large bowl, combine the cucumber, mango and dressing. Stir well to coat. 

Either eat fresh or refrigerate until ready to eat. Stir well before serving to redistribute the dressing.
