First prepare the salad dressing by mixing vinegar, olive oil, salt, pepper, lemon juice and crushed ginger & garlic. Set this aside.
In a small salad bowl mix diced mango, cucumber, tomato and cilantro with the salad dressing. Let this sit in the refrigerator for atleast one hour; this way all the flavors will blend and soak in well. Serve this cold on a hot summer day.
