mango cucumber salad
David has been outside this morning picking out the field of dandelions that plague our yard and pruning back the holly and juniper bushes. Spring cleaning is up and running after a quick trip to Lowe's to buy some pruning sheers, gardening bags, and gloves. While David enjoyed his zen-like garden work, I threw together a salad that reminds me so much of the Spring/Summer weather we are heading into.
First you start by cleaning and de-stemming some watercress
Peel, slice, and dice a mango
Cube up some avocado and also cube up half of a cucumber and toss together in a large bowl
Once all of your dicing and chopping is complete, it is time to mix up the dressing. Use 3 teaspoons of fish sauce, zest of 1 lime, juice of 1 lime, 1 teaspoon of brown sugar, 1 tablespoon of olive oil and 1 teaspoon of rice vinegar. Combine in a bowl.
Then drizzle dressing into salad right before serving, toss together, and enjoy a tropical treat.
