Fresh, simple, and sweet, this salsa makes for a fabulous summer accompaniment to anything grilled or simply on its own. Feel free to substitute basil or cilantro for the mint and lemon or orange juice for the lime.
Yield 6-8 servings
2 mangoes, fully ripe
1 small cucumber or 1/2 of a large cucumber
A handful of mint leaves, finely minced
The juice of 2 limes (about 3-4 tablespoons)
Salt and pepper, to taste
Peel, slice, and dice the mangoes into 1/2-inch cubes. Peel and de-seed the cucumber and dice it about the same size as the mango.
Mix the mango and cucumber in a bowl with the mint leaves, lime juice, salt, and pepper. Stir together and taste, then add more lime juice, salt, or pepper if necessary. For best results, let sit at room temperature for 15 minutes before eating.
