Fresh Mango & Cucumber Salad
AND GREEN BEANS WITH CARAMELIZED GARLIC
This fresh and crunchy salad is perfect for a buffet. The texture of the less fibrous yellow adolpho and alphonso mangos are preferable if you have the option. You can prep everything for this salad ahead, but toss with the dressing just before serving.
