Mango-Cucumber Salad with Cayenne Dressing and Lime Basil Recipe

5 from 9 reviews

This is a great picnic salad because you can make it up to 1 hour in advance and it won’t wilt. If you are worried about the basil turning brown, you can slice it, wrap it in a damp paper towel then stick that in a resealable plastic bag or wrapped in some plastic wrap. Then toss it into the salad right before serving.
