This salad is refreshing and versatile – ideal for our hot summer weather! Serve as a side dish or salsa, it pairs beautifully with all types of cuisine.





1 cucumber peeled, seeded and diced
1/2tsp. minced jalapeno
1T. fresh lime juice
1T. fresh lemon juice
2t. brown sugar
2T. dried, unsweetened shredded coconut
1 mango peeled and diced *
1 small red pepper
1/2 bunch chopped cilantro


Mix all ingredients in a serving bowl except cilantro.


Serve with cilantro on top

I sometimes use 2-3 mangos – depending on how meaty they are.

This recipe was given to me by Irene York, who I met in Bucerias via other friends. Irene is a professional knitting instructor and taught me a new technique for knitting. She is a snowbird spending winters here, summers in California and travelling Europe where she purchases many different types of yarn for her business.
