Tropical Cucumber Salad

For a delicious, refreshing and healthy taste of the tropics follow this recipe which combines cucumber, avocado and mango with a salty-sweet dressing. The recipe yields about four generous one cup servings - but it is so tasty that even then you may find that you and your guests are going to want seconds!

Ingredients

3-5 teaspoons fish sauce*
1 teaspoon freshly grated lime zest, plus more for garnish
2 tablespoons lime juice
1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil (or better still melted coconut oil)
2 teaspoons coconut sugar (or raw light brown sugar)
1 teaspoon rice vinegar
1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper
1 medium cucumber, cut into 3/4-inch slices and diced
1 avocado, cut into 3/4-inch dices
1 mango, cut into 3/4-inch dices (See instructions below on how to peel and cut a mango)
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro

*Fish sauce is a pungent Southeast Asian condiment; find it in large supermarkets and Asian markets.

(As always, choose organic content and fresh content as much as possible for the healthiest recipe.)

  

Instructions

To peel and cut a mango:

1. Slice both ends off the mango, revealing the long, slender seed inside. Set the fruit upright on a work surface and remove the skin with a sharp knife.
2. With the seed perpendicular to you, slice the fruit from both sides of the seed, yielding two large pieces.
3. Turn the seed parallel to you and slice the two smaller pieces of fruit from each side.
4. Cut the fruit into the desired shape.

To finish the recipe:

Whisk fish sauce to taste, lime zest, lime juice, oil, sugar, vinegar and crushed red pepper in a large bowl until combined. Add cucumber, avocado, mango and cilantro; gently toss to coat. Serve garnished with lime zest, if desired.

Yields 4 servings, about 1 cup each
