I first saw this recipe in an old issue of Martha Stewart Living and discovered that it’s also at MarthaStewart.com. The vivid colors drew me to this salad recipe and I knew I had to try it out! It’s not a combination I would have thought up myself for a salad, but I really liked it…the soft, sweet mango wedges combined with the crunchy cucumber slices and radishes taste really great with the tangy-sweet lime dressing!
I didn’t add lime zest to the dressing like the original recipe says to, but the dressing was still great. It’s such a healthy, summery salad…and you could serve it at a brunch or as a side at lunch or dinner. Hope you get to try it out soon!
MANGO RADISH CUCUMBER SALAD WITH LIME DRESSING by NancyC, slightly adapted from Martha Stewart Living
Makes 4 servings
- 1 mango, peeled and cut into wedges
- 1/2 of an English cucumber, thinly sliced (or substitute one medium-size regular cucumber)
- 1 bunch radishes (about 8), halved or quartered
- 1 Tablespoon finely grated lime zest (optional)
- 2 Tablespoons lime juice (or juice from 2 limes)
- 2 Tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
- 1 Tablespoon honey
- dash of salt
Arrange wedges of mango, cucumber slices, and radish chunks on a platter.
Make the dressing: In small bowl, whisk together the lime juice, lime zest (optional), olive oil, and honey. Add a dash of salt to taste.
Drizzle Lime Dressing over salad. Season with more salt if desired (I didn’t add any more salt at this point when I made mine).
I’ve never made such a colorful salad before! Do you have a favorite colorful summer salad you enjoy making?
