Hello !!!!

Summers are in full swing and the heat is unbearable. I am always thinking of quick and healthy recipes that can help me to be out from my kitchen as soon as possible. Apart from the heat, work at office is also hectic and drains me end of the day as i have been reaching home very late everyday. For dinner my family prefers to have a healthy salad that is filling too. My boys have rice or Chapati with any veggies as well. You can make the salad more appetizing by adding home made dips or dressing. Home made dips and dressing are always the best.

Our 93rd #Foodiemonday #Bloghop theme is  #Summerfruit. My Contribution for this wonderful theme is this versatile Mango and Cilantro dressing that is so finger licking good. I enjoyed this dressing with some papadums.

Recipe for Mango and Cilantro Dressing :


1 Ripe Mango peeled and cubed

1/4 Unripe Mango peeled and cubed

1/2 Cup fresh Cilantro leaves

1 Garlic Clove

2 Sprigs of spring Onion finely chopped

2 Green Chilies (Medium Spicy)

1/4 Tsp Cumin / Jeera

Salt to taste

1/4 Cup fresh Lime juice

1/3 Cup Olive Oil

1/2 Tsp Freshly ground Black Pepper


Put all the ingredients except oil in a blender and blitz until smooth. Gradually add oil in batches. Puree thoroughly after each addition. Dressing will be thick ,creamy and light lime color.


Store it in an airtight container and refrigerate. I make it in small batches regularly.


Enjoy this creamy dressing !!!!!!!!!

    Your dressing looks and sounds so delicious, Preethi 🙂
    I would wish, that mango was less expensive in Europe, but as all import they demand transportation and get more expensive by that. For now I only buy a mango for enjoying as a very delicious and tasty fruit.
