"This was posted in the Arkansas Living Magazine. Refrigeration time is included in prep time. I personally used frozen mango in place of the fresh. The original recipe called for cumin seed and ground cumin both, but I knew I would have trouble getting cumin seed, so I just made the recipe for more ground cumin."

Great salad - we had it for dinner tonight! I had to use lemon juice b/c no lime at home. I used a lot less ground cumin than stated. Loved the mangos - I used frozen too! Made for beach party

Wow, Marra Wow. We loved this dish, it truly was wonderful. It was quick and easy to make with excellent results. It was full of great flavors and textures. The sauce was amazing and worked beautifully with the pasta shrimp and vegetables. We now want shrimp in all the pasta salads we try. The picky dh loved it, said he really enjoyed the salad and would love to have it again soon. He is requesting that I make it for his sister soon. Thank you for making me look so good.
