One of the worst parts about moving to a new city has got to be leaving your favourite restaurants behind (apart from friends and family, of course…)

After moving to Montreal to study, I found myself very quickly craving one of my favourite salads from Stella’s Cafe and Bakery – a restaurant in Winnipeg well-known for their healthy, house-made meals.

So, obviously I had to try and recreate it. And I think I got pretty close! While my version has its differences, this recipe is similar enough to satisfy my cravings whenever they hit.

It’s a little sweet, definitely savoury with a mild hint of curry and a delicious tang. All in all, it’s delicious.

MANGO CHUTNEY VINAIGRETTE INGREDIENTS

Making the vinaigrette is easy, just throw the following in a blender:

  • mango chutney (see note below)
  • oil (canola or another neutral flavoured oil)
  • vinegar & lemon juice
  • soy sauce (for umami-flavour and a darker color)
  • curry powder, turmeric & black pepper

Note: a chutney is a type of condiment in Indian cuisine that is usually made of fruit, vegetables or herbs and is preserved in vinegar, sugar and spices. I used this one but other brands or flavour variations would likely work well too!
