Mother’s Day Brunch

Mango Curry Dressing Recipe

Posted on 9th of May, 2012 by Lévana

Salad-Mango-Dressing

This salad dressing is delightful not only over greens, but also with  fish or chicken, grilled or poached. The pungent curry is a wonderful foil for the fruity and tart mango. Use only as much dressing as will lightly coat your greens, and include with your greens some diced fresh...
