Frugivore Recipe: Thai-Mango Dressing for Salads


  • 1 ripe mango, peeled and diced
  • 3 tablespoons lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon honey or maple syrup
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger
  • 1 small red chili, finely chopped (optional)
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro (optional)
  • A pinch of sea salt (optional)


  1. In a blender or food processor, combine all the ingredients.
  2. Blend the ingredients until smooth and well combined. If the dressing is too thick, you can add a little water to achieve the desired consistency.
  3. If desired, add the chopped fresh cilantro to the dressing and pulse briefly to incorporate.
  4. Taste the dressing and adjust the flavors according to your liking. You can add more lime juice for tanginess, honey for sweetness, fish sauce or soy sauce for saltiness, or chili for spiciness.
  5. Once the dressing is well blended and balanced, transfer it to a glass jar or airtight container.
  6. Allow the mango-based Thai salad dressing to rest for at least 30 minutes before using it. This will allow the flavors to meld together.

This vibrant mango-based Thai salad dressing pairs well with fresh salads, especially those featuring mixed greens, herbs, and tropical fruits. Enjoy the delightful combination of sweet, tangy, and savory flavors in your Thai-inspired salad!
