Mango Spinach Salad with Honey Lime Dressing

I asked my Mom to take the kids yesterday because I had to meet a bunch of deadlines. Several hours later they walked in on me rockin’ out to N’Sync’s “Bye Bye Bye”. Before that, I was dancing to Britney’s, “Hit Me Baby One More Time”.

Those two songs will never go out of style. Right? RIGHT??

Needless to say, the deadlines are still here…

Which brings me to my next point. Every time I send the girls to my mom’s, they come back, like, 5-pounds heavier! What does that lady feed them?! I bet it rhymes with mocholate and mizza.

The girls always come back from her house with rosy cheeks, bloated bellies, and are slap happy, grinning from ear to ear.

Spinach Salad with Homemade Dressing Recipe

One Of My Favorite Salad Recipes For Summer 

So, here’s the thing. I didn’t make mocholate, nor mizza. I made a malad. I mean a salad!
I know. It’s been a hot minute since we last discussed a salad, but honestly? I want to swim… NO. I want to LIVE in summer salads!

However, I do wish I was lettuce… and if I was, I would be something like watercress – the name alone just sounds good to me. And it’s peppery, which is the best word to describe ME! Hot as a pepper! Kidding!!

In my perfect world, we would be swimming in cakes, but gurrrrrrl, Summer has arrived. We need to tone it down, a bit…
Said the girl who JUST had Bacon-Wrapped Tex-Mex Hot Dogs for lunch… Don’t judge. Them things are goooooood!

BUT, what I’m trying to say is that I made a salad. It was bee-YOND! And I ate the whole thing. All of it – 1 whole mango, 2 cups spinach – all in mah belly.

Also?? The honey-lime dressing is SO GOOD!

  1. Amazing and unique flavor combination!!! So fresh and tasty that everyone in my family loved it, from the picky non-spinach eating 8 and 12 year old kids, and my husband who also hates spinach. He asked for SECONDS! This salad recipe is going to the top of the list. Thank you very much for sharing and helping others like myself who are not so creative in the kitchen.

    Too sweet for my taste, will add 1 instead of 2 tablespoons of honey next time. Also I added the dressing components direct to the salad and next time will, as in recipe, pour on to the salad.

    Still good recipe

    i like mango.
    mango spinach salad honey lime dressing are all healthy food. i loves summer slad. it looks fresh and tasty.

  4. I’m a garbage salad kind of girl, so I started with your recipe, subbed sliced almonds for the cashews (which I prefer to eat out of hand), and added half an avocado that needed to be used up. It was a tasty, light salad that I will definitely make again. Thank you for the inspiration!

    What a delicious looking meal. I am definitely giving this recipe a try. Mango and spinach are all-time favorites of mine, and this is a meal I am totally excited to try. Can’t believe it is also so healthy and nutritious. What an interesting take on mango and spinach, never thought they would go so well together. Splendid!

    Salads like this are great for adding balance because everybody needs a bacon wrapped hot dog now and then, right? Right! Looks gorgeous and super tasty.
