Refreshing Fruits

Sorry I haven't posted in a while.  I have been visiting with family and I have been hunting for new treasures to makeover for my new hobby.  I am not ready to give a sneak peek just yet, but summer is almost over and I am still trying to enjoy all the wonderful fruits that are blossoming.  The other day, I was munching on a beautiful white nectarine that was so juicy and yummy that I grabbed some colored pencils and sketched the bowl of them---they were scrumptious!  Sadly, they are all gone, but here is what is left...
(Sorry the pic is not right side up...my computer is not cooperating...the gray shadows should be on the bottom.)

Another lovely fruit...the mango.  It never goes unappreciated!
This fresh cucumber-mango salad is inspired by my friend, Natasha.


In a large bowl, add 1 large cucumber diced up, 1 ripe mango cut in little pieces to your liking, about 1/4 cup-1/2 cup fresh parsley (just eyeball it, so you don't use too much), drizzle with a tiny bit of extra virgin olive oil, and squeeze the juice of an orange on top.  Gently mix and serve.  Dee-lish!
