Summer Mango Salad

Make this before summer leaves us till next year!

Mango Summer Salad

1 cucumber, peeled, seeded, and diced
1/2 tsp minced fresh chile
1 T fresh lemon juice
1 T fresh lime juice
2 tsp brown sugar
2 T unsweetened dried shredded coconut
1 mango, peeled and diced
1 small red bell pepper, minced

fresh cilantro or spearmint leaves

In a large bowl, combine everything but the cilantro. Cover and chill for 15-20 minutes and serve cold or at room temperature. Just before serving, top with cilantro. Serve as a salsa-style dip with chips or as a quesadilla topping on a tortilla with shredded lettuce and beans or cheese.

My friend Linda made this for my family a few sundays ago and we loved it! We had it just as a side dish without chips or on top of anything. It was delish!
