Mango Chia Dressing on Tossed Salad

It is so fast and easy to make your own salad dressings at home with a blender. They are so much healthier for you too. I love the natural sweetness of mangoes so they are a perfect choice for a salad dressing. Chia added to the dressing boosts up the protein and also works as a nice thickener. This is a great way to enjoy a healthy salad.



1 C mangoes frozen
1/2 C water
1 tsp apple cider vinegar
1 T olive oil
1/4 tsp salt
1/8 tsp cayenne pepper
1 T honey
2 T chia

1. Pour all the ingredients into the blender and blend until smooth. Place in fridge while you make the salad.


4 C spinach
1 C chopped broccoli
1/2 C dried cherries
1/2 C dried apricots
4 green onions chopped
4 stalks of celery chopped
1/2 C diced carrots
feta cheese * optional
sunflower or pumpkin seeds or both

1. Toss all the ingredients together in a bowl, and serve with the dressing.
