Shrimp, Cucumber and Mango- Sunday Supper Salad

Mangoes and cucumbers are abundant this time of year, and each summer we highlight these ingredients in a wonderful salad.  It is easy to prepare, and when served family style, can serve a crowd.  

This salad has a mild sweet flavor with a hint of spiciness that provides a lot of flavor with minimal effort.  The whole salad can be put together in under twenty-minutes.

We have been making this salad for many years. I have no idea where the recipe came from but, it is one of our easy to prepare for friends and family favorites.

  3. I can see why this is a favorite. I think that shrimp pairs so well with cucumber and mango. This sounds delicious and I would love a plate full with a slice of crusty bread!
