Expert Tips

Surimi is mild-flavored white fish, such as Alaskan pollock, that has been shaped and colored to resemble shellfish. The most common surimi is imitation crabmeat, available in sticks, chunks and flakes. Look for refrigerated or frozen surimi in the fish department of the grocery store.

Pre-sliced mango, in jars in the produce department, is a time-saver as well as a guarantee of ripe fruit for this salad.
