Recipe Notes

1. Use a mandoline slicer to get thin even cuts for the cucumbers, the mango and the onions. The mandoline slicer makes life better in the kitchen! I can't believe I have had a mandoline slicer for so long and I wasn't using it enough. I read this post by The Stay at Home Chef that suggested using it to slice even onions. And I tell you, "onions have never looked so beautiful! So use a mandoline slicer for beautiful slices or the slicing side of a box grater. They are basically the same thing!

2. Use mango that is just ripe and firm to the touch. Mushy mangoes won't produce clean slices.

3. Measure the olive oil first then use the same spoon to measure the honey, The remnant of the olive oil on the spoon helps the honey slide easily from the spoon.

4. This cucumber mango salad will keep for 2-3 days in the fridge.
