Mango Poppyseed Dressing

Gluten Free Living – 2016

Mango Poppyseed Dressing is truly delightful. I love creamy salad dressings especially when I can make them with Greek yogurt instead of mayonnaise. This salad dressing uses awesome clean-eating ingredients like avocado oil, honey, champagne or ataulfo mangos, apple cider vinegar and poppyseeds. It’s a refreshing, low calorie, gluten free recipe made super delicious with the addition of mangos.

It has been a crazy couple of weeks for me. First of all, I forgot about this recipe. I failed to record it in my blog notebook so I never bothered to look for the pictures and post it. I accidentally wiped out my computer in mid-July. What a disaster! When I went back and tried to restore everything I found the pictures for this recipe and the salad I made with it. Ding, ding, ding ding! The light bulb went off and I realized I forgot to post this amazing recipe (and the salad I made to go with it).  I guess there is something good that came out of all those headaches. 🙂

When I served this salad and dressing for supper (I think it was back in June), my husband said it was almost too pretty to eat. It really was beautiful and the dressing had a delicious combination of flavors. I have to admit I will eat two or three ataulfo mangos in one sitting when they’re in season. I love the things. I actually like this variety better than the more common Haden mangos that we usually find at the grocery store. I peel them and just bite into them. Yes, they’re a little messy, but oh such a wonderful messy….They’re not super easy to cut, but worth the effort for recipes like this.

If you’re looking for a healthy and tasty salad dressing that’s wonderful over top of any tossed salad, give Mango Poppyseed Dressing a try. You’ll eat a lot more salad when you can serve it with a salad dressing like this one. It’s also excellent to use as a dip for fruit. Enjoy.

Ataulfo mangos make a delicious dressing. Make sure you get really ripe mangos as they’ll be sweeter. These ones are more yellow rather than green. That means they’re ripe.

    This sounds like a wonderful dressing, Teresa! And your fruit salad that goes with it is gorgeous. I love mangos so I know would really like this salad and dressing. It would be fun to make for company just because it is so pretty. I am so sorry to hear about your computer issues! How frustrating. I’m glad you were able to save your pictures. It would be terrible to lose those!

      Hey, Shari. Thanks for your kind comments. Well, it took me almost a month but I finally have my recipes and pictures all updated. Thankfully I was able to get everything restored. I love mangos too and loved this salad. Thanks for stopping by. Have a great weekend.
