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.

Mango Salad Dressing

A fresh and fruity mango vinaigrette salad dressing. 
Prep: 15 minutes
Total: 15 minutes
Servings: 16 (makes about 1 cup)


  • 1 cup fresh mango (about 2 medium mangoes)
  • 1 tablespoon honey
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice
  • Salt & pepper to taste
  • 1/2 cup olive oil


  • Peel and dice your mangoes. Here's a good step-by-step tutorial if you haven't done it before. 
  • Add the mango pieces to your food processor along with the honey, lemon juice, and salt & pepper. Blend on high. Slowly drizzle in the olive oil while the motor is running. 
  • Transfer the dressing to a jar with a lid. Chill for a few hours or serve immediately. Dressing will last a few days in the fridge.


  • This is the trusty food processor I used to make this salad dressing.

    I saw this recipe for the first time .?seems very yummy .I am very fond of salads . Thank you so much . Could you pls suggest more salads beside spinach and strawberry.

    1. Natasha says:

      Hi! Hmmm… you could use it on any combination of spring mix/spinach/lettuce/etc. with your favorite veggies… tomatoes, red onions, raw sliced mushrooms, cucumber, radishes, celery, carrots, bell peppers, olives, etc. and even a sprinkle of cheese like feta. Just replace this dressing with whatever kind of dressing you’d normally use. 🙂

  2. Stephanie says:

    Can you use frozen mangoes? So you can make it year round?

    1. Natasha says:

      You could try! I haven’t done that myself, but in theory that should work.

  3. Patsy says:

      Excellent! XO

  7. Laura says:

    Is it alright if i put together the salt,pepper, honey, lemon juice and olive oil first then mixed it with mango?

    1. Natasha says:

      Hi Laura! You mean like without a food processor or blender? I am not sure it’ll blend properly and emulsify like it’s supposed to. You could probably do it without drizzling it in if you’re using a blender or food processor, though.

  8. Sophie says:

    We are trying it this evening, will let you know how we get on!!

    1. Natasha says:

      Great! I hope you like it. 🙂

  9. Melissa Griffiths says:

    Homemade dressing for the win! I live in the middle of nowhere, though, so mangoes are elusive but if I can get my hands on one, I’m trying this dressing!

    1. Natasha says:

      Thanks, Melissa! I hope you get to try it. 🙂

  10. Natasha's Sister says:
