Mango Vinaigrette

I got the idea for this vinaigrette after making my homemade strawberry-lemonade jam and turning it into strawberry vinaigrette. I had a jar of egg-free mango curd that was just begging to be used the same way. It’s so easy to make salad dressing with fruit jams and curds. It lends a flavor and texture that you just can’t get anywhere else! It’s slightly creamy, sweet and tangy and great on any type of lettuce or leafy green. It actually reminds me a LOT of honey mustard! Enjoy!

SIKE!

Updated 4/16/15 – almost exactly 1 year later! The photos for my early recipes (i.e. THIS RECIPE) are shamefully terrible… my, how far we’ve come…

I’ve revamped this post with new photos AND a new recipe, so, it’s super simple, quick, and fresh. What could be better? I went crazy at the Indo-Pak supermarket and bought a huge case of Ataulfo mangoes for crazy-cheap and then I had no choice but to make 30 mango recipes. So, here’s #1 out of 30. :)

This quick & easy recipe will also be in Paleo Parents’ upcoming e-book, so, keep your eyes peeled for exciting news on that!
