This is a delicious dressing! In the salad pictured above I used the following:
⦁ 50/50 blend of spring mix greens and spinach
⦁ 5-6 cucumber slices
⦁ a handful of grape tomatoes
⦁ about 2 Tablespoons of crumbled goat cheese
That's it! The Mango, Coconut & Pepper dressing gave the salad all it needed to be really delicious. It has just the right amount of sweetness, citrus, and spice.
The best part (only second to the taste) is it only has 20 calories to a tablespoon. This means I can enjoy more of it on my salad.
Here is a list of the ingredients:
⦁ Filtered water
⦁ Mango puree
⦁ Apple cider vinegar
⦁ Dried coconut
⦁ Orange juice concentrate
⦁ Citric acid
⦁ Dried habanero peppers
⦁ Xanthan Gum

⦁ 16 oz at Earth Fare sells for $5.99 (Which I thought was a little high and I did hesitate before I purchased because of the cost, but I am really glad I paid the price and gave it a try. The quality is worth the extra cost.)
⦁ Finding it is challenging. It is sold at Whole Foods, The Fresh Market, Earth Fare, and in some Publix Greenwise Markets. I found a few folks online who were buying it at Costco but now they can't find it...wouldn't hurt to look at the Costco near you anyway.)
I took a chance and tried something new - bingo! I hit the jackpot with this one!
