Creamy Mango Habanero Dressing
Chef Alex Strauss
Silken tofu provides body and creaminess to this salad dressing, habaneros add heat and fresh mangos give it a fruity finish. Drizzle the dressing over greens or serve it on a salad bar as a creamy, dairy-free alternative to please vegan diners.
1 package (12 oz.) silken tofu, drained well
2 ripe mangoes, peeled and roughly chopped
½-1 habanero chili, minced
Juice of 2 limes
2 tbsp. tamari
2 tbsp. honey
½ cup soybean oil
Salt and pepper, to taste
- In mixing bowl, combine tofu, mangoes, chili, lime juice, tamari and honey. With immersion blender, blend ingredients until pureed. (Or place in blender container and puree.)
- Slowly add oil to emulsify while still blending. Taste and adjust seasonings with salt and pepper.
