Theresa 's Spinach Salad With Lychee Mango Dressing

"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."

  1. 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.
  2. This was a delicious, colorful salad. The sweet fruity dressing was unique and tasty and has a lovely pale orange color as well as an almost rose scented aroma. I omitted the nuts and added a few extra lychee halves on top of the salad.
  3. Delicious and different salad which was wonderful with grilled chicken, even though the lynchees were unavailable (out of season) so I subsituted a basket of raspberries. The end result was a very good, out-of-the-ordinary fruity spinach salad. Thanks for sharing!
