Aloha Friday

What foods do you love to cook in the summer time?

I love to make cucumber & mango salsa. The cucumbers come straight from our garden. So easy and delicious. Here is the recipe if you would like to try it.

3 mangos peeled, seeded and diced
2 cucumbers peeled, seeded, and diced
2 jalapeno peppers, seeded and finely chopped
1 large onion, diced
1 clove garlic, minced
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
1 tablespoon lime juice
salt and pepper to taste

Stir together the mango, cucumber, jalapeno pepper, onion, garlic, and cilantro in a mixing bowl. Season with lime juice, salt, and pepper. Refrigerate at least 2 hours before serving to allow the flavors to blend.


  1. Oooooh! That sounds REALLY good! I'm definitely going to make that! I love to cook anything on the grill during the summertime. :)

  2. I use my slow cooker a lot in the summer. It makes a meal without all the heat in the kitchen.
