Mango Nectar Dressing From Savory Raw Dressings & Sauces

Delicious salad dressings without oil or vinegar.

Nuh-uh, you say.

Yeah-huh, I say, after receiving a review copy of the ebook Savory Raw Dressings & Sauces by Andrew Perlot.

I tried the very first recipe, the Mango Nectar Dressing. Since it’s only two ingredients, it’s ridiculously easy and simple. But the taste is so light and refreshing, I didn’t miss the oil or vinegar at all.

Mango Nectar Dressing From Savory Raw Dressings & Sauces

As there’s no salt or any other seasonings to hide behind, the ingredients have to be of the very best quality. Fortunately there’s still some great produce to be had at the farmers market. In keeping with the lightness of the dressing, I made a salad of jicama, baby romaine lettuce, cilantro and sliced almonds as a garnish.

The ebook starts out with an introduction of why no oil or vinegar, then moves on to how to make your own healthy dressings. There’s eight low-fat, salt-free recipes to get you started. They require only a minimal of fresh ingredients and a quick blend for a nice healthy dressing.

Disclosure: I received the cookbook free of charge from the publisher to review. The opinions and experience with the cookbook expressed herein are my own. There was no pay to say.

    the mango nectar dressing sounds so fancy, tropical, and amazing! i do love a good vinegar based dressing, but i can appreciate some awesomeness like this! your jicama-cilantro-almond salad combination sounds like the perfect pairing – and i love that it’s salt-free, too. fantastical all around!

    This e-book sounds like just what I need. Mango nectar dressing must be a wonderful treat on the salad ingredients you chose.

    This dressing sounds lovely! I love anything mango but have never used it in a dressing. The ebook sounds like something I’d definitely get a lot of use from

    What a cutie Andrew Perlot is, standing there with his VitaMix. Love it!

    That salad is beautiful. I love jicama and need to get some tonight when I go to the grocery!

    Crazy, a cookbook haven’t heard of! Well, I’m definitely curious; a sauce can make or break a dish, so I’m always looking for new options.

    That sounds so delicious! I have never thought about trying mango in a dressing. I am going to come up with something like that on my own right now.
