Meatless Mondays: Cucumber Mango Salad

Jun 6, 2011
Megan Bedard is a sucker for sustainable agriculture and a good farmers market, she likes writing about food almost as much as eating it.

Inspired by Meatless Monday, a campaign encouraging people to cut back on their meat consumption one day a week, TakePart's "Meatless on Mondays" will give you every reason you need to skip the steak. By going vegetarian one day a week, you reduce your environmental impact, expand your palate, and improve your health.

Meatless Mondays don't have to be packed full of heavy carbs. Though we're fans of pizza and pasta here at TakePart headquarters, we like fruits and veggies as much as the next guy, and we were craving them as the June's first Meatless Monday rolled around.

Fresh, fruity, and easy to make, this recipe by Beth Moncel of Budget Bytes fits the bill.

With a bit of chopping, scooping, and stirring, you'll be on your way to a delicious dish in no time.
