It’s mango season here and anywhere I go, fresh ripe mangoes are available and since I’m into a salad for my quick dinner I decided to make my own dressing aside from my regular apple cider vinaigrette.

  • It’s super easy to make and can be used for up to 4-5 salad servings.
  • It’s cheaper than buying a ready-made salad dressing.
  • A healthier choice because you know the ingredients and it has no added preservatives.

  • Knife and chopping board to slice the mangoes.

This vegan mango salad dressing is made gluten-free and vegan and sweetened with maple syrup.

SUBSTITUTIONS

Sweeten your mango salad dressing with sugar if maple syrup is not available. Just make sure to mix well for the sugar to be dissolved.

Use water to replace apple cider vinegar.

TIPS AND TRICKS

Ripen your mangoes with this trick:

  • Wrap your green mango in an old newspaper or paper bag, keep them at room temperature or store them in a dark place or kitchen cabinet. Check after a few days.
  • Leave them on your countertop table it will naturally ripen as well but longer.
  • In India, putting them in your uncooked rice storage will speed up the ripening process.
  • And similar to Mexico, putting mangoes together with popcorn kernels can speed up the ripening process.

Trivia: When I was a kid the only fruit I would eat are mangoes together with cook rice and that’s it.

BENEFITS OF MANGO

Ripe mangoes are a good source of fiber, potassium, and vitamin C. It contains antioxidants and can also help with iron absorption in your body.
