What Type of Fruit to Use (Fresh or Frozen)
You can use fresh or frozen fruit for this recipe. If using frozen fruit, thaw it first and drain any excess liquid if applicable.
I love to use frozen mango because I prepare this dressing year-round. Frozen fruit is so easy to find. Costco offers organic frozen fruit for really affordable prices.
Fresh fruit will also work!
What Type of Olive Oil to Use
Extra virgin olive oil is generally the best choice. It is the highest quality and most flavorful type of olive oil, and it is made by simply pressing the olives without using heat or chemicals. This results in a fresh and fruity taste that can enhance the flavor of your salad.
