Fresh mango chunks, cilantro, and a kick of jalapeño make this mango cilantro salad dressing absolutely irresistible! All it takes is 10 minutes and you have yourself a vibrant dressing to go over your favorite salads.



Yields: 1 cup

  • 1 large mango*, peeled, pitted, and chopped
  • 1/2 cup fresh cilantro leaves
  • 1 green onion, roughly chopped
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1 Tbsp. chopped jalapeno
  • 1/4 tsp. cumin
  • 1/4 cup fresh lime juice (12 limes)
  • 1/2 cup canola oil
  • salt and fresh ground black pepper, to taste


  1. To a bowl of a food processor, add mango, cilantro, onion, garlic, jalapeno, cumin, and lime juice. Season with salt and fresh ground black pepper, to taste. Puree until smooth.
  2. Gradually add oil, in a steady, slow stream, and puree thoroughly after each addition.** Dressing should be thick, creamy, and light lime color.
  3. Store, refrigerated, in an airtight container up to 3 days.


*You will need 3/4 cup chopped mango, which equals to be about 1 large mango. Fully ripe mango works the best.
**Adding oil in a slow, steady, stream (gradually) is very important to creating thick and creamy dressing as oil and lime juice naturally separate but when emulsified, they create magic.
