Cucumber and Mango Salad

A light refreshing salad for diabetic, nut free and vegan diets.

The season for the smooth skinned and fragrant Alphonso mango is until the end of June (any variety of mango can be used in this recipe). If you have one ‘lying around’ (not sure how that would be for this soft sweet fruit) this salad makes an unusual starter. It is also particularly good with strong flavours, eg BBQ meat fish or vegetables or a platter of cheeses.
