MANGO SALAD WITH SPICY HONEY DRESSING

April 15, 2019

Salads are an all time favorite food of mine, and I always have my wheels turning for versions that don’t have tender lettuces. Ones with heartier bases like, beans, kale, and here – mango, hold up well when prepped in advance.

Also increasingly I am sometimes becoming dissatisfied with storebought dressings and am frequently just making my own. It’s kind of always surprising how good dressings can taste with simple ingredients and this spicy honey one is VERY QUICK to whisk up in a bowl.

For this recipe I used sioux honey – pure honey, with nothing added, made in the usa by family beekeepers who care about making trustworthy honey.

Mango Salad with Spicy Honey Dressing
Serves four

3 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons honey (I use sue bee honey)
2 tablespoons lime juice
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/2 teaspoon red pepper flake
A pinch of salt
3 mangoes, chopped
1/2 red onion, minced
2 cucumbers, chopped
2 avocados, chopped
3 green onions, sliced

Whisk together olive oil, honey, lime juice, chili powder, pepper, red pepper flake, and salt.

Toss mango, red onion, cucumber, and avocado with dressing. Top with green onion.

    Rachel sorry to jump in here but I need your help. I was looking at one of your recipes that had chicken, white rice, wild rice and cheese. As I am about to hit print….poof …. you sailed off into cyber space and I can’t find it. Can you help…please…. I looked wonderful and I am about to send the “sympathy” casserole to a fellow church member… Thank you

      Sure! Actually I use that recipe a lot for sympathy meals too. It’s called cheesy chicken and wild rice casserole. You can find it by searching in the search bar.

  • Dear Rachel, I found your site though a fellow blogger. So glad I hopped over here. Your site is exquisite and your food looks delicious.

    The crostini look fabulous…a wonderful dish to bring to a party…but I also love this mango salad you prepared.

    Blessings, Catherine
