Mango, Lime and Fresh Ginger Dressing

This versatile dressing is ideal for fruit salads of all kinds. It's also good with grilled fruits. Because it is sweet, a little goes a long way.

Makes about 2 cups

2 ripe mangoes, peeled, flesh sliced off

1/2 teaspoon grated fresh ginger (dried is too harsh)

1/2 cup fresh mint leaves

Juice of 2 limes

1/2 teaspoon Dijon mustard

Salt and white pepper to taste

6 tablespoons plain yogurt

In a blender, combine all ingredients except the yogurt. Puree until smooth.

Add the yogurt and puree. Taste. It should be smooth and moderately sweet. Store in an airtight jar for up to two weeks.
