This salad dressing is so delicious and unexpected. If you have fresh mangoes lying around without a place to go, the solution is right here.
This salad dressing is definitely a must-try! It’s sweet and slightly tangy with a kick of heat. If you’re not sure where to use this, I suggest making my delicious Sesame-Crusted Tuna Salad. You could also substitute the tuna with some grilled shrimp, or simply keep it vegetarian with just lettuce, cucumbers and avocados.
No matter where you use this dressing, I think it’ll help you imagine the warm spring and early summer days ahead of us. Maybe it’s my Florida Keys post, but all I can imagine is lying on the beach with a cocktail in hand (the perfect salad chaser). Hope you give this one a try!
