Lime and Coconut Salad*


1 cup grated sweetened coconut

1 English cucumber, seeded

Grated zest and juice of 1 lime

1 jalapeno, minced

1 mango, cubed

1-2 tbs olive oil

Salt and pepper to taste

Mix all ingredients and chill for at least 30 minutes before serving. May be made a day ahead, although it is best when served within a few hours. Other fruits may be used, such as papaya or melon. Delicious when served as an accompaniment to fish or curry dishes.
