Mango & Cucumber Yoghurt Salad


The word "DIET" doesn't exist in my vocabulary because I believe that healthy eating is a life long journey. Dieting is certainly for people who would like to loose weight, For me, its about maintaining my current weight. So its a balance between sinful food and healthy raw salads, This mango salad is another as the previous apple cucumber salad which will perk up your taste buds. Its with mango, cucumber and black currants in a yoghurt mustard dressing.
  
Ingredients
1 (about 300g) semi-ripe mango - remove skin and cubed/diced
1 (about 200g) cucumber - remove seeds and cubed with the skin on
20g dried black currants
2 stalks coriander leaves - shredded/chopped
100ml yoghurt
2 tbsp olive oil
1 tbsp yellow mustard
Salt for taste

Method:
Add all ingredients into a mixing bowl.
Toss and stir.

  1. I really like the dressing you used on this salad. The blend of mustard and coriander must taste amazing. I have never thought of pairing a fruit with cucumber-but I can understand how the flavors would compliment each other. Unique and healthy dish here-yum!
