Salads are my go to in the summer. There are days when turning on the oven or stove is just not going to happen. So I pile on the veggies, find an avocado and call it a day.

How do you make vegan mango lime vinaigrette
Start by defrosting frozen mango or cutting the flesh from a fresh mango.
Add the mango and the rest of the ingredients to a high speed blender or food processor and blend until smooth. I love using my Ninja Bullet blender for dressings! It’s so easy to clean and I can easily make small or large batches.
Start with just 3-4 tablespoons of water and increase the water by 1 tablespoon until you reach the consistency you enjoy!

If you do not like cilantro or don’t have cilantro on hand, you could also try adding a mixture of fresh mint and flat leaf parsley.
