I know it might be hard to believe, unless you’re living in a place other than the Frozen Tundra, but spring is right around the corner. I swear. As the season changes, I’m happy to trade in my warm comfort foods, for fresh lighter recipes and this mango cucumber salsa is perfect for that.

I originally made a simple mango salsa to pair with my Chamoy glazed pork tenderloin, and it was one of the first times I actually made anything with mango. In fact, I wasn’t even a fan of mango before that. Anyway, I was making mango salsa to use in a taco recipe I was testing, and I realized that I had a lot of cucumbers that I needed to use up, so on a whim, I tossed them in. And, it was the best thing I’ve ever done.

Ok, maybe that’s a bit dramatic, but the cucumber was a perfect match for the sweetness of the mango. I was so happy with the way it turned out, I made it two more times before making it again to take photos.

    […] can’t go wrong with these toppings, but you can definitely use other toppings if you want. Mango salsa would be great instead of the pico. Just don’t forget the lime […]
