Cucumber Mango Salad
Once we move to Florida cucumbers are going to be growing in my garden.
The recipe is from Sweet & Savory by Shinee.
This is delicious. I didn't use the dill paste, and I loved using my hot chili oil.
Dug out one of my toys and used it to julienne the cucumber.
I made this twice, with the cilantro and without. Liked both.
1 large cucumber
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
For the dressing:
2 tablespoons lemon juice
2 tablespoons soy sauce
1 tablespoon honey
1 teaspoon hot chili oil
1/2 teaspoon sesame oil
Wash and peel the cucumber and mango and cut into julienne strips, add to a medium size bowl.
Cut the cilantro ( I used scissors) and add to the bowl with the mango and cucumber.
Whisk the lemon juice, soy sauce, honey, hot chili oil and the sesame oil in a small bowl until thoroughly mixed.
Add the dressing to the cucumbers and mango and cilantro and marinate for at least 2 hours.
