Mango Cucumber Salad
I just love the way the cucumbers and mangoes look in this salad. The green and orange look so summery and playful. The addition of lavender syrup provides a fragrant boost of flavor.
½ cup water
1/8 cup sugar
1 tablespoon lavender
Bring all ingredients to a boil in small pan over high heat. When sugar is dissolved, strain and cool.
2 mangos, diced
½ cucumber, shredded
3-4 tablespoons of lavender syrup
Mix mangos and cucumber with three to four tablespoons of the lavender syrup.
