We know that mangoes taste SO GOOD it can be difficult to resist eating them right off the board. Take it from another mango lover: this time, it’s well worth it to let them make it into the blender. This bright, sweet turmeric mango vinaigrette is perfect for our spicy watermelon salad.
It’s as easy as mixing and tasting! The base is mango, with a mixture of white wine vinegar, lime juice, and avocado oil, adding a rich, neutral flavor.
Other ingredients include honey or maple syrup for sweetness, sea salt to enhance flavor, turmeric, which is known for its bright yellow color as well as anti-inflammatory properties, and chili pepper for a subtle smoky taste.
Peel and cube 3/4 cup of ripe, fresh mango
Fresh lime juice, 1/4 cup
1 tsp of white wine vinegar
Honey or maple syrup (depending on mango sweetness): 1-2 teaspoons
Peeled one clove of garlic
1 tsp of ground turmeric
Half a teaspoon of sea salt
Use 1/2 tsp Chili Powder or less, depending on the type of chili and your spice preferences.
Use 1/3 cup avocado oil* or another neutral-flavored oil
Add all ingredients, except avocado oil, to a high-speed blender*. Blend until smooth. Slowly stream the avocado oil into the blender while it is running. Add everything at once if you’re using a blender without an opening to pour in the oil.
Serve chilled or at room temperature. It’s delicious on salads (recipe coming soon! ), bowls, tacos, fish, and more.
