    With a family of 6, I rarely have leftover fruit, but today I magically found a lonely ripe mango sitting on my counter.  Instead of throwing it in a smoothie (my most favorite thing to do), I decided to experiment with its sweet flavor and create a cucumber mint salad.  The mint creates a refreshing smack that you typically wouldn’t associate with mango, but the cucumber, lime and strawberry pull it together perfectly! 

    INGREDIENTS
    1 very large cucumber
    1 cup fresh strawberries
    1 ripe mango
