Mango Cucumber Basil Salad

This is a quick, easy salad that goes well with any spicy foods, like Red Curry Halibut.
Serves 2, just increase the quantities for more.

The goal is equal quantities of mango, cucumber and onion, so rather than measure everything out, you'll be eyeballing it, but I want to at least give you approximate quantities.

1 mango
1/2 small, or 1/4 large, red onion, thinly sliced on a mandoline
1/4 English cucumber, thinly sliced on a mandoline
Fresh basil leaves, chiffonade
Freshly squeezed lime juice (1 lime max, depending on how juicy or dry it is)
Kosher salt & freshly ground black pepper

Cut the sides off the mango, avoiding the pit. Use a large spoon to scoop the flesh from the skin and thinly slice. Toss in a bowl with the sliced onion, cucumber and basil. Add lime juice, salt & pepper to taste.
