This Mango Cucumber Salsa recipe happened when I decided to forage through my vast collection of food pictures. This refreshing salsa is most definitely one of the easiest recipes you will ever prepare. The sweetness of the ripe mango and refreshing bits of cucumber accented by sharp bites of onion and cilantro makes for a tasty delicious summer salsa that you might be tempted to eat solo. Serve this light refreshingly fruit salsa with chips or as a topper for spicy grilled chicken or fish. If you intend to serve this salsa with chips or other dippers. Make it a day ahead. This gives the flavors additional times to release and mellow. Your taste buds will thank you.
