Who Took My Mango Dressing – Gluten-free Dairy-free and Sugar-free

Hi Salad Lovers,

Last week I had a few mangoes starring me down on my kitchen counter.  They looked great in the store and I knew I could make a green mango salad or a mango lassi with them but as usual I got busy and neither idea happened immediately.  Now the mangoes were perfectly ripe and had to be used.  So I decided to use one in a salad dressing which also lead to a new salad creation- Daikon Radish and The Missing Mango Salad.  The moment my adult son got home from work, he noticed the mango was gone – apparently he had been dreaming of a mango smoothie and was disappointed it was gone.  That is until he tasted the dressing and salad I made.

Today I will share the dressing that goes with my new salad creation.

“Who Took My Mango” Dressing

  • 3 tsp tahini
  • 1 tsp cold pressed sesame seed oil
  • 1 tsp organic miso
  • 3 tsp gluten-free tamari
  • 1/2 ripe mango
  • 1/2 organic lime (1/4 with peel on, 1/4 peel and pith removed)
  • 1/2 cup orange juice

Directions

  1. Place all ingredients into a high speed blender (Vitamix).
  2. Turn on slow, move to high and give it a power boost to ensure the mange and lime are fully blended.
  3. You may need to add more orange juice to smooth out the dressing depending on the size of your mango and lime.
  4. This makes a thick dressing which is ideal for a cucumber based salad that is high in water content.
  5. Add to Daikon Radish and The Missing Mango Salad and mix thoroughly before serving.
  6. Store remaining dressing in a mason jar with lid and store in fridge.

Tip: I added some Vegenaise and Organic Apple Cider Vinegar to the remaining dressing a few days later and added it to some curly kale bite-sized segments and massaged the dressing in.  I then added a minced yellow pepper and diced carrot for colour and texture.  Let me say, that salad was a hit with the family too.

May your mangoes find new ways to be enjoyed.
