Cucumber-Mango Salad

Yield 6 servings (serving size: 2/3 cup)
The blend of sweet, fiery, and smoky qualities common to Ethiopian fare is exemplified in this simple salad. Since red jalapeños are sometimes hard to find, you can always double up on the milder green variety.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups thinly sliced peeled English cucumber (about 1)
  • 1 1/2 cups finely chopped red onion
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1 teaspoon peanut oil
  • 2 cups chopped seeded tomato (about 1 pound)
  • 3 tablespoons chopped unsalted, dry-roasted peanuts
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped seeded red jalapeño pepper (about 1)
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped seeded green jalapeño pepper (about 1)
  • 1/4 teaspoon coriander seeds, crushed
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground red pepper
  • Dash of ground cinnamon
  • Dash of ground cloves
  • 1 3/4 cups diced peeled ripe mango (about 1)
  • 1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro
  • 3 tablespoons fresh lime juice
