Amazing Mango Chutney Salad Dressing

The following recipe blends spinach, pecans, raisins, and apples with a tangy, sweet mango chutney salad dressing. You can use this a wonderful appetizer salad or an unusual side salad. You will see that the recipe calls for toasted pecan halves which you can buy or make. To toast your own pecan halves, bake them for 10 minutes at 350 degrees F.

This mango chutney salad dressing can be used on salad leaves instead of the spinach, apple, raisin and pecan combination. You could also use it on a salad containing blue cheese, since the synergy between blue cheese (or another tangy kind) and mango is wonderful; the saltiness, creaminess, and fruitiness would make a magical mix indeed.

You do not need a lot of ingredients to make this, so you can expect to taste every single one in the finished dressing. Ensure you are using good quality ingredients. The chutney and curry powder need to go into a blender or food processor along with the oil, mustard and salt, and the result is a piquant and flavorful dressing. Served over a spinach, apple, raisin, and pecan salad, this is simply fantastic. You might find you have some dressing left over, so save it and have it over salad leaves, spinach, pearl couscous, or even with rice salad the following day. In fact you might want to double the amount of dressing so you end up with more of this delicious mixture.
