When it comes to salad, the dressing is a key ingredient that determines whether the salad is going to taste great, average or pretty inedible.

It’s very easy to get store-bought dressings that taste good, but most of them are filled with sugar, excess salt, trans fats and a cocktail of chemicals.

The good news is that it's also very easy to make your own salad dressing! Many homemade dressings call for a lot of oil, so if you want an oil-free, low-fat dressing, this raw mango version is a great choice.
