I’m one of those people who isn’t quite sure about fruit in salads. I like my savory foods to be savory, and my sweet foods to be sweet.

I’ve never even made a strawberry salad dressing. Who even knows what possessed me to make a mango one! It was a good idea, I’ve decided.

I like mangoes, and I thought that if strawberries can make a good salad dressing, so can mangoes. I wanted to keep the ingredients simple so that the mango flavor shines through.

This mango salad dressing is perfect for summer! It’s not too sweet, tastes a little tropical, and livens up any salad.

The salad I tested it with is a strawberry spinach salad with avocado. And yes, there’s more fruit in there. I went all in. I’m still on the fence about strawberries in a savory salad, but spinach and strawberries is a pretty safe and well-loved combination, so there you have it.

How to make mango salad dressing

All you do to make this mango dressing is cut up the mango, add it to your food processor along with some lemon juice, honey, and salt & pepper. Slowly drizzle the olive oil in, and you’ve got a nice emulsion.

Add it all to a jar and keep it in the fridge for a few days. The recipe makes over a cup of dressing, so you’ll be able to use it on a few salads easily.

  • 1 cup fresh mango (about 2 medium mangoes)

    I would make this with lime rather than lemon juice as limes are traditionally served with mangos. Also, mangos are sweet enough that honey is not required.

    1. Natasha says:

      You can do whatever you like, Jackie.

  2. Faden Liliana says:

    I’ll try tomorrow, can you use it dip sauce too?

    1. Natasha says:

      You can, but it may not be thick enough to really adhere to vegetables like ranch would, for example. Hope you enjoy it!

    2. Jackie Hall says:

      Just replace the oil with Greek yogurt to make it a dip.
