Cucumber Mango Tropical Salad

This is a fantastic side for just about any fish main dish. I discovered it on some mile long list of 12 minute dinner ideas. Now it makes regular appearances in our house!

Cucumber Mango Tropical Salad... serve with simple seafood dishes like seared scallops or salmon.

by 52 healthy meals 12 minutes or less


1 mango (chopped)
1 small cucumber (peeled and cut into bite-sized pieces)
1/2 tbsp grated ginger
1 tsp lime juice
1/2 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp cilantro (chopped)


Chop mango and cucumber. Grate the ginger. Squeeze the juice from half a lime. Toss it all together in a bowl.

Yes, it's that easy.

The smells from this one... omg amazing. I wish you could smell this right now.

Every ingredient you add is like... I love this one! No, this one! All the smells layer together so amazingly.

This really makes the meal, so serve it with something that needs a little extra flavor like simple white fish or seared scallops.

This week I served it with pan-seared "smoked" sweet salmon, brown rice, and an amazing bok choy recipe. The ginger really gives it this awesome zing. Add a bottle of inexpensive champagne and toast that it's the weekend! Or Tuesday. Whatever. This recipe is easy and that is worth celebrating!

Your turn! 
What's your go to side dish these days?

Keep cooking!
