Mango Salad w/ Spicy Thai Dressing

I've been trying hard for the last few days to eat entirely raw while also cutting back on fats. I obviously have been eating a lot of salads, but without the dressing. Until I made this super yummy mango salad made out of 100% fruits and veggies, even the dressing.

I couldn't even tell I was eating a gigantic bowl of fruits and veggies!

This would be perfect for bringing to a potluck picnic or family barbeque. You can keep it dressed in the fridge for several hours because there's no lettuce that will go soggy.

1 almost ripe mango, julienned
1/2 red pepper, julienned
1 small bunch of kale, chopped and massaged until wilted
1 zucchini, grated
2 carrots, grated
small handful of cilantro, chopped

1 almost ripe mango
1/2 red pepper
1/2 cup water
1/2 tsp sea salt
1 tsp thai yellow curry paste
2 tsp lime juice

Blitz dressing in your blender and dump over salad. Mix up and eat!

Sweet and Spicy

Mix it all together and you've got a summer salad!

I love the sweet mango with the spiciness of the curry paste. If you don't have curry paste put some cayenne pepper and a garlic clove. That should do the trick.

This salad made it easy to make a change and STICK TO IT!


  1. ahhh this looks fabulous!!! love how it is all fruits and veggies, even down to the dressing :D

  2. this sounds so tangy ... loving the combination u used.

  3. Not sure why you gals are avoiding fats, but it is really important to eat healthy fats with leafy greens and salads in order to absorb the fat-soluble vitamins. There is a method to the madness of putting an oily dressing on salad!
