Refreshing, deliciouse and easy! I added some red pepper flakes to kick it up a bit....could have been done with more fresh hot peppers. Since I had lovely, unwaxed English cukes, I did not peel them.

This was very simple and it tasted great. I made it once without the hot peppers, amd canned mangos, don't. Fresh mangos were superior and it needs the little extra kick of the peppers. I also use about 1/2 the sugar. This is a very refreshing and pretty salad.
