Friends, we know mangoes are SO good it’s challenging not to devour them all right off the cutting board. But take it from a fellow mango enthusiast: This time it’s worth letting them make it to the blender. You’re going to want a batch of this bright, naturally sweet turmeric mango vinaigrette around for our Spicy Watermelon Salad!
Grab your blender and 9 ingredients (mostly pantry staples) and let’s do this!
This dressing is as simple as blending and enjoying! Mango is the sweet creamy base, a mix of white wine vinegar and lime juice give it bright + tropical notes, and avocado oil adds a flavor-neutral richness.
The remaining ingredients include maple syrup or honey for extra sweetness, sea salt for overall flavor, turmeric for its vibrant yellow color and anti-inflammatory benefits, and chili powder for a subtly smoky kick!
We hope you LOVE this mango vinaigrette salad dressing! It’s:
Quick & easy
& SO delicious!
It’s amazing on salads, but also works well anywhere you’d want a sweet, bright addition, including bowls, tacos, and fish (drizzling on grilled mahi-mahi would also be delicious).

*The riper and more flavorful the mango, the better!
*We tested with olive oil and wouldn’t recommend it. The flavor is too bitter and overpowers the mango.
*Recipe as written makes ~1 cup (240 ml) dressing. This quantity of dressing blends well in a narrow base Vitamix or smaller blender, but if you have a wide base model or larger blender, you may need to double the batch size to get it above the blades so it can blend.
*Loosely adapted from The Café Sucre Farine’s Sweet and Spicy Mango Salad Dressing.
*Nutrition information is a rough estimate calculated with the lesser amount of maple syrup and without optional ingredients.
