    I had never thought of the combination of mango and cucumber before until I tasted this salsa at a friend's house. Now I am addicted to it!

    This recipe is very similar to the mango salsa served on a Mexican chain restaurant's Mango Salad (the manager told me how to make it). In that recipe they add some chopped red pepper, red onion instead of white, and don't use garlic. So, I use red onion, add chopped red pepper, and omit the garlic. It is very refreshing, and I now have mango salsa cravings! Hint: If you don't want to peel and dice mangos, many grocery stores have bags of chopped mango in the frozen fruit section, however it is a little pricey.  -  23 Aug 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Wonderful recipe.....just fantastic w/ grilled fish. I add the zest of 1/2 lime along with the lime juice , a drizzle of honey for slight sweetness, and a pinch of cumin for pizazz. You've got to try this one!  -  01 Jul 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    this was delicious. We added pineapple for more sweetness and a tomato just because we had it. Great over tequila lime chicken!  -  05 Apr 2009  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
