Foodie Friday

Summer is a great time to add fresh tropical fruits to your meals. I love mango added to anything- smoothies, salads, and meat. I love recipes like this that are summery, sweet, easy, and healthy. The recipe listed below is great alone or served on top of a piece of lean protein like grilled chicken or fish. Yummy!

Cucumber, Mango, and Red Onion Salad

  • 1 mango, pitted and cut into large cubes
  • 1 red onion, sliced into thin rounds
  • 1 cucumber, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 2 Tbsp lime juice
  • salt to taste
  • 1 Tbsp parsley, fresh, chopped- for garnish
