Frugivore Recipe: Thai-Mango Dressing for Salads

Salad dressing are decisive in raw nutrition, as most of our diet is based on sweet fruit bowls and savory green bowls. Therefore having healthy and tasty salad dressing are an important factor in making this diet actually work!

Further, fruits and greens are a super healthy combination, to which we are naturally drawn as frugivores. This is why it is not only tasty but healthy to add a fruit-based salad dressing to your salad bowl. The vitamin C of fruits helps us absorb iron from a plant-based diet better – which is important for a successful plant-based and raw diet.

If we think bout it, salad dressings are an imitation of fruity taste: the acidity and sweetish flavor that we add to greens make greens and veggies taste more fruity and actually appealing. This is the reason I am getting creative in mixing healthy fruit-based salad dressings, like this pink mango-lime-containing dressing, which is inspired by Thai cooking:


  • 1 ripe mango, peeled and diced
  • 3 tablespoons lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon honey or maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger
  • 1 small red chili, finely chopped (optional)
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro (optional)
  • A pinch of sea salt (optional)
  • If you opt for parasite cleansing, you can add fresh garlic to this dressing.


  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!
