I have been on a raw food/juicing cleanse for 10 days and I am responding really well to all this clean, live food. I wanted to keep this feeling going so I am integrating some salads back in after all the blended and juiced foods. I made this salad dressing and honestly you could use this as a dip for veggies, as a sauce over some zucchini noodles, or on top of any meat like chicken or pork. The possibilities are endless. 

Avocado Mango Salad Dressing

Serves 8

Vegan - Raw - Gluten Free - Grain Free - Paleo - Sugar Free 

Ingredients

  • 1/2 Avocado (make sure it is very ripe)
  • 1 Cup Chopped Mango (I used thawed frozen or you can use fresh just make sure it is ripe)
  • Zest and juice of 1 lime
  • 1/2 Cup Light Coconut Milk (or use 1/4 cup full fat and 2 Tbl of water) or unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 Tbl Chopped Cilantro (or mint if you don't like cilantro)
  • Pinch of Cayenne
  • 1/2 Tsp Fine Sea Salt
  • 1/4 tsp Black Pepper (freshly ground)

Optional

  1. 1 Tbl Maple Syrup (or sweetener of choice see notes)

Instructions

  1. Place all the ingredients in a blender and puree until smooth.
  2. Add more coconut milk by the tablespoon if it is too thick.
  3. Taste for seasoning and sweetness. (see notes)

Notes

  1. Depending on the sweetness level of your mangos you may want to add some additional mangos to balance the flavors or the maple syrup to taste. If you are following a completely raw diet you can use raw coconut sugar or add more fruit to taste.
