This is one summer salad that is definitely as pleasing to the eye and waistline as it is to the pallet. Very light and crisp to help keep your menu cool on a hot summer day. Simple ingredients include crunchy red radishes, lemony mango, cucumber and Lime. The original recipe calls for olive oil and honey as part of the dressing, but I have found that omitting these two items, cuts down calories and doesn’t cut out the flavor of the salad.
1 Mango, peeled and sliced into wedges
1/2 English Cucumber
1 Bunch Radishes halved or quartered
1 Tbsp finely grated lime zest and 2 Tbsp lime juice (from 2 limes)
2 Tbsp EVOO (extra virgin olive oil)
1 Tbsp Honey
Course Salt (optional)
Arrange mango, radishes, and cucumber in a large salad bowl or platter, whisk ingredients of dressing together and drizzle over salad. This is a fun salad to entertain with and is so simple to make! I encourage you to make it as the recipe says the first time, and then the second time try it without the honey and olive oil – You really don’t miss them and are cutting out 300 calories! Enjoy! I found this recipe in my May 2010 Martha Stewart Living Magazine, who knew sometimes Martha can be simple.
