Monday's Leftovers: Shrimp, Cucumber, and Mango Salad

Monday's Leftovers: Shrimp, Cucumber, and Mango Salad

Still trying to do good after weeks of holiday indulgence? This salad is light in every respect except taste. Its exotic flavors will be like a resort vacation for your palate — a welcome break from the hearty soups and stews of the season.

While tropical fruits may seem out of place in a Winter salad, mangoes are often shipped from countries like Brazil, where it's Summer and peak growing season. Serve the salad alongside plantain chips and pomegranate-mango guacamole for pure paradise.

For a stunningly simple meal,

This is sooo similar to a salad my father makess every year on our Cape Cod vacation--shrimp, spring greens, mango, cucumber,tomatoes, and a ginger-lime dressing. It's somewhat of a tradition for him to make this, and I just love it.

Bah, I hadn't had a good WHOLE mango since my vacation to egypt. The pre sliced ones are not the same. If only the east coast got good fruit. The only decent thing here are our apples and blueberries.
