Lakewinds (our local co-op) had some enticing, perfectly ripe mangoes sitting on their shelf yesterday.  I just couldn’t resist!  I placed them in my basket and thought, “What to do, what to do..”  How about a refreshing salsa-esque salad paired with some grilled Ginger Lime Chicken?  Perfect!  (Ginger Lime Chicken recipe to come in a few days!!)

Spicy Mango-Cucumber-Coconut Salad

1 mango, chopped
1/2 cucumber, chopped
1/2 inch fresh ginger, minced or grated
2 tsp fresh lime juice
1 Tbsp raw honey OR sprinkle of Stevia (less if the mango is really sweet)
1/8 tsp cayenne pepper (more/less to taste)
1/2 cup organic full-fat coconut milk

Toss all ingredients together (except coconut milk) and refrigerate for at least 2 hours, preferably overnight. Serve with a drizzle of coconut milk, garnish with a slice of ginger.  Makes for a refreshing afternoon snack on its own or a side dish for a meal!
