    Fantastic. Better than the classic Israeli salad

    This is very bright tasting. My mangoes were very ripe but I think it needed more cucumber. I would love to serve with pork loin.

    This is easy, lovely to look at, and very yummy! For me, the combo of sumac-onions and mint was really bright and fresh tasting (and I don't even always love mint!) and it went beautifully with the cucumbers and mango. My mango was extremely ripe, so it didn't cube up well. Still worked fine, though. My one complaint is that the amounts were a bit off - the recipe calls for 1 cucumber and 2 mangos, each of which are supposed to equal 3 cups. I found that 1 (relatively large English) cucumber and 2 regular sized mangos actually equaled only 1 1/2 c each. Since I had planned to make a half recipe, it worked out fine, but I can imagine being annoyed if I had thought 1 cucumber was going to feed more...
