Mango-Lime Salad Dressing

I have a lot of recipes to share with you, but I decided to start with this one, because well it's short! It is also very easy to whip up. Especially if you have a little blender such as Magic Bullet, or Cuisinart etc.

I am getting my bi-weekly veggie CSA shares now, and consequently have been making a lot of delicious salads with fresh, local produce.  I ran out of my usual salad dressing so decided to try something a bit different. I pulled up Food network's 50 salad dressings for inspiration- my go-to for dressings. I don't have a subscription to Food Network Magazine anymore, and I miss these little booklets.  This is a variation of number 8- mango lime. I was surprised at how creamy the mango makes it. It looks almost like a ranch or ceasar dressing, without all the calories! woo I also really like Rubbermaid's small salad dressing containers. They are great if you bring a salad in your lunch, and so far haven't leaked at all. 

- 1/2 cup mango (I used frozen)
- 1 tablespoon lime juice
- 1 teaspoon dijon mustard
- 1 teaspoon sugar 
- 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1/4 cup rice wine vinegar
- 1/2 cup vegetable oil 

Blend everything together. Enjoy
