When summer gives you mangoes, make mango salad dressing. I enjoy creating my own salad dressing, both vinaigrette’s and creamy. So I decided to create a salad dressing using one of my favorite fruits–mangoes! And although you may think creating salad dressing is a task only for the brave, nope you can do it with ease.

This mango dressing is perfect for switching things up. It adds flavor and sweetness to any type salad. Salads are not only delicious, but can be a healthy part of your diet. You can’t possibly go wrong with a tasty salad every now and then. Also, incorporating raw foods into your diet, can help with digesting food and absorbing nutrients.

~Mix the salad ingredients together and place the salad to one side of the bowl and the mango dressing to the other.
~Toss the salad & mango dressing gently together; a little at a time. This will prevent the salad from becoming too saturated by the dressing.

    Summer is the ideal time to have a fabulous time and get innovative with servings of mixed greens, as they supply great supplements without the additional full feeling and calories. What’s more, who needs to feel stuffed on a hot summer day? Summer and servings of mixed greens simply go well together. They additionally DON’T heat up your kitchen while get ready. Garden servings of mixed greens are phenomenal hors d’oeuvres before eating a full feast.

      I totally agree, simplicity is the way! I love the tangy sweetness the dressing gives to the crisp lettuces.
