Go mango

I am a bit addicted to mangoes, but find cutting and peeling them so tricky that it stops me from eating them very often.  Last week, we found the perfect kitchen gadget at Dansk in Southgate Centre: the Good Grips Mango Splitter from OXO.  I tried it last night and it works very well!

Here is one of my favorite recipes (its really easy now that I have the mango splitter!!):

Cucumber-Mango Salad

1 English cucumber (with peel), thinly sliced

1 mango, chopped

slivered almonds

Parsley-Lime Dressing:

2 tbsp lime juice

2 tbsp cooking oil

1 tbsp fresh parsley, finely chopped

1 tbsp chili sauce

1/2 tsp dried crushed chilies

1/4 tsp salt

Combine ingredients in tight fitting jar, shake well.

Drizzle over cucumber mixture.


Have a good day!  L & I are checking out No Strings Attached at the movies tonight.  Dreaming of Ashton Kutcher is the best way to get through a long, boring Tuesday at the office.
