Get your salad on! Try this fruity, spicy, sweet & DELICIOUS Mango Jalapeno Salad Dressing on your summer salads.
We’re fully in salad season here in Phoenix. Too hot too cook, most nights we are doing what I call “salad bar” which involves me chopping a whole bunch of vegetables at the beginning of the week, and storing them in the fridge.
Come dinner time – I’ll just add a protein (maybe some grilled chicken, or some black beans, or boiled eggs), and everyone gets to just make their own salad bowl. Add a little of some, a little more of others, you get to make it to your taste. Everyone wins!
The kids think it’s great because they get to control what is on their plate. My job is to provide the food, theirs to choose. If I’m happy with the food on the table, I honestly don’t mind which ones end up on their plate (as long as at least SOME actually ends up in their bellies).Love this Mango Jalapeno Dressing? Tweet it!
So while I’m a huge fan of salad, I’m NOT a huge fan of bottled salad dressing. I’ve gone to the trouble to chop all the veggies – why not blast a homemade salad dressing together in the blender?
It only takes a couple of minutes, and if you’ve prepared the salad ingredients ahead – dinner can be ready REALLY fast.
This mango jalapeno salad dressing is sweet, spicy, fruity – and entirely addictive! I like to use it not just for salads, but over a little cream cheese, and dipping crackers into it. YES PLEASE!
Look at these simple ingredients!
Kylee’s Notes for Mango Jalapeno Salad Dressing:
- Leave the seeds in the jalapeno for a spicier version
- Strawberries are also excellent in this recipe!
- Add more or less oil/vinegar (in similar quantities to the original recipe) to get the consistency you like!
