I recently returned from a trip to Utah, where I ate at one of my favorite restaurants in the Salt Lake Valley, Zupas! They have a salad on their menu I ordered a couple of times while visiting! It is a strawberry mango salad with a mango yogurt dressing. I’ve never had a yogurt type dressing before and think it’s so perfectly paired with the berries.

I thought I’d post a recipe imitating the delicious salad I had there that is full of strawberries, blueberries, mangoes, and cinnamon pecans. 🙂

Enjoy!

Instructions
Salad
  1. In a large bowl, toss all the salad ingredients together until combined.
  2. *The cinnamon pecans takes extra work and extra dishes that I'm not fond of. So lots of times I skip this step. But if you've got spare time, here's how to make the cinnamon nuts: Heat 1/4 cup water in a skillet over medium heat. Add the 1/2 cup pecans or almonds, 1-2 Tbsp. maple syrup, and 1 tsp cinnamon. Stir constantly until all the water is evaporated. Move nuts onto parchment paper on counter and let cool before using.
Dressing
  1. In a blender, combine all ingredients together and blend until smooth. Pour over salad as desired. Eat immediately. Store dressing in an airtight container in fridge for up to 1 week.
Recipe Notes

This salad is best made in the summer time when the fruit is in season and deliciously sweet! 🙂

*Buy organic when feasible
