I’ve been really getting into making my own dressings lately. I like it because it’s easy to control the ingredients, eat healthy, and so fun to get creative with out of the box dressings!
When I was thinking about this dressing, I knew I had to do something different so that I can keep a hint of the sweet coconut while incorporating other flavors. As they say, sweet and spice makes everything nice (or something like that anyway). Of course I had to add jalapeño peppers to this to give it a kick and the best part is you get a hint of each of the flavors without one overwhelming the other.
I paired this with a Rainbow Crunch Salad (coming soon!) and it was absolutely amazing.
Try out this coconut jalapeño dressing with these other recipes:
Add all of the ingredients in a blender and blend until you have a smooth consistency.
Store in an airtight jar in the refrigerator for up to 1 week.
If you don't have coconut cream, you can use coconut milk. The clot at the top of the can when you open it that has separated from water is cream. Scoop it out and save the water to use in another recipe.
Mango is my absolute favorite in the whole world! Done. That’s it. If I were stuck on an island and there were mangoes, I would be set.
That being said, I think for my hubby, it would be salsa. Honestly, I’ve never seen a salsa that man has not devoured.
I love this mango salsa because it is so fresh, tangy, sweet, and spicy all at the same time! I’ve paired this the traditional way with chips, fish, tacos, fish tacos, as a dip during parties and more recently with Hawaiian chicken. There’s no wrong way to eat mango pico!
The mango pico that I made is very easy and simple but it packs a punch of flavor. I go a little heavy on the spice to balance the sweet of the mango and only 5 ingredients needed to make.
