  • 10 ounces fresh mango puree
  • 2 ounces fresh lime juice
  • 1 ounce white balsamic vinegar
  • 4 ounces olive oil

Instructions

For Mango Dressing:

  1. Combine first four ingredients in blender. Drizzle in olive oil to emulsify. Add salt to taste. Reserve 3 ounces for Salad Mix. 

For Avocado-Chive Oil: 

  1.  Heat avocado oil to 250 degrees F but not hotter than 300 degrees F. Place fresh chives (rough cut) in blender, and add hot oil; blend immediately. Strain with fine chinois and cool in ice bath immediately to hold color and flavor. Add salt to taste. 

To assemble salads: 

  1. Mix all Salad Mix ingredients together and toss with 3 ounces Mango Dressing. In the center of each salad plate, lightly press about 3 ounces Mango Beet Salad Mix into a 3-inch diameter ring mold; remove ring.
