Mamey salad dressing

The run-of-the-mill salad dressings have ketchup, mayonnaise, mustard, relish or other condiments as ingredients. It's time to think of salads as worthy of better toppings. Salads aren't hot dogs. Enter mamey, a deliciously sweet but savory fruit that adds flavor and healthier nutrients to the lettuce.


1 cup mamey sapote
1 tbs olive oil
1/4 cup red onion
1 clove garlic
1/2 cup cooking sherry
1 lime
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper

Yield: 1 1/2 cups
Prep time: 15 minutes, plus 2 hours of refrigeration

How to juice a lime


1. In a food processor or blender, place the mamey, oil, onion, garlic, sherry and juice of one lime. Pulse until smooth.
2. Add salt and pepper to taste.
3. Scoop into a refrigerator container, cover and chill for at least 2 hours. The dressing can stay refrigerated up to 3 days.
4. Serve on top of any salad, as you would a salad dressing.
