Tropical Cucumber Salad

READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by Manami

Originally in an Eating Well Newsletter. Combine cucumber, pineapple and avocado with a sweet & sour dressing to make it tropical tasting. The recipe called for a mango but we are not mango eaters, so I changed a few things.

This is a wonderful salad! The crisp, the smooth & the tender textures combine with just the right tarness, sweetness & warmth to make an outstanding salad! Served with an Indonesian peanut noodle dish & tumeric poached chicken - it was a delightful meal & we are looking forward to making this again this weekend as there were no leftovers with four people! PS - skipped macadamia nuts as we had none. Thank you DiScharf for a truly special salad!
