Theresa 's Spinach Salad With Lychee Mango Dressing

READY IN: 10mins
Recipe by Rita1652

This is named after my sister Theresa because she left a bunch of lychee' at my house. I ate a couple then thought a dressing made out of these would be really good. And it is! If you never had fresh lychee 's before I highly suggest you give them a try. Just peel the skin and enjoy the juicy fruit. It 's very sweet, refreshing just like her! You can use the rest of the dressing as a really good cold soup or just cut the recipe in 1/2.

One of the best recipes I've tried in 2013! I don't know why I never thought to blend mango as a salad dressing - it is so sweet and delicious. In fact, it's so sweet that it is important not to omit the onion and ginger from this recipe. I used blood orange olive oil, and this is one of the best homemade dressings I've ever made. I will definitely make this again, and hope to catch the fresh lychee season which I missed in South Florida this year - went by so fast.
