Summer salads don’t get much more refreshing than shaved fruit and crisp vegetables. Wide ribbons will absorb the dressing and wilt slightly so that the texture is crisp without being too soggy or crunchy. The trick to shaving with a vegetable peeler is to start with firm, slightly underripe fruit. Rotating the fruit or vegetable as you peel will create even slices and make it easier to handle. Because thin ribbons are much more porous than thick slices or wedges, the salad will wilt if made ahead and is best enjoyed immediately.

How to Make It

Step 1

Using a vegetable peeler, shave mango crosswise into long strips, turning mango slightly after removing each strip. Discard pit.

Step 2

Combine mango and remaining ingredients in a bowl; toss to combine. Serve immediately.
