  1. Combine all the dressing ingredients in a lidded jar, adding salt and pepper to taste. Shake well to blend.
  2. Put the onion in a shallow dish, pour over the dressing and leave to marinate for 30 minutes.
  3. Halve the mango lengthways, cutting down round each side of the stone. Peel off the skin, then cut the flesh into small slices and place in a bowl. Add the kiwi and cucumber.
  4. Tip the marinated onion into the bowl together with all the dressing and fold together gently.

More ideas

If you are not fond of the taste of coriander, try using fresh mint instead.
Add 2 large ripe plums, cut into thin slices, and use 2 oranges instead of the mango. Peel the oranges, removing all the white pith, then cut into segments between the membranes. Squeeze all the juice from the membranes and add to the salad.

Plus points

Kiwi fruit are an excellent source of vitamin C – weight for weight they contain more vitamin C than oranges, and one single kiwi fruit will provide almost 100% of the recommended daily amount of this vitamin. Kiwi also provide some potassium (a good intake of which may help to prevent high blood pressure) and soluble fibre (which can help to reduce high blood cholesterol levels).
