Spicy mango lime dressing paired with fresh spinach, chard, avocado, yellow bell pepper, crushed pecans, chopped cilantro, blackberries, and shaved Parmesan cheese.

I paired this with a fresh salad of spinach and chard, picked from my own garden, rocket (arugula), avocado, blackberries, yellow Bell pepper and freshly chopped cilantro topped with Parmesan shavings. Literally THE BEST combination once I drizzled on the spicy mango lime dressing.

The key to a good dressing is a balance of flavors

In this case, besides the Mango here is the key components of this dressing:

  • The sweet – from the mango and any sugars you add (i.e. honey, sugar or simple syrup).
  • The spicy – coming from the scotch bonnet and the garlic.
  • The tang – in the lime juice.
  • The spice – from the earthy warmness of the cumin.

What’s in this Spicy Mango Lime dressing

  • Fresh Mango
  • Scotch bonnet
  • Garlic clove
  • Onion powder
  • Cracked black pepper
  • Salt to taste
  • Sugar pinch
  • Olive oil
  • Green onion
  • Lime juice
  • Vinegar
  • Cumin

How to make Spicy Mango Lime dressing

This recipe takes 5 -7 minutes especially if you have a good blender. Throw all the ingredients into your blender, gradually adding the olive oil, and pulse or blend until all the ingredients are combined.

Technically your making a vinaigrette as oil and liquid naturally separate so adding the oil gradually allows the two liquids to blend better.

This recipe will make a small batch of about 1 – 1/2 Cups so double up if your making this for a large group of people.

Spicy mango lime dressing is perfect for my summer salad using some greens straight from my garden.

How long will this dressing last

The dressing will last about a week in the fridge. That’s if you don’t eat it all first. Store it in an air tight container for better results.
