Saucy Mango Cilantro Cucumber noodles!

Ok seriously though you guys, THIS is so GOOD.

This is the lightest, brightest and most delish dressing I’ve made since last week’s pea pesto :)

I got this idea from watching an episode of the Kitchen on the Food Network, one of my favorite shows, and they were featuring some Indian recipes so I used the main ingredients (minus dairy and such) and made it my own!

I first made this with chopped cucumbers and tomatoes, added fresh scallions and more cilantro but today it was a noodle bowl dish!

Saucy Mango Cilantro Sauce


  • 1 1/2 cups fresh cubed mango OR thawed out frozen organic mango (what I used)

    • NOTE: if you place frozen mangos in a glass dish to thaw in the fridge, DRAIN the liquid off before you blend it, or it will be runny

  • 1 green onion/scallion

  • 2-3 cloves fresh garlic (I used my frozen peeled cloves)

  • 1 lime, juiced

  • 1- 2” piece of fresh ginger (I went big on the ginger)

  • A BIG handful of fresh organic cilantro

  • Pink Himalayan sea salt

That’s IT! Seriously, when I first tasted this I thought I was drinking a smoothie because the mango and ginger make it so bright and zesty!

Blend blend blend. That’s it.



  • I large organic english cucumber, spiraled or noodled. I use THIS easy hand held noodle maker!

  • Handful of grape tomatoes, halved (I halved the long way to go with noodles, the short way when I diced my cucumbers)

  • Himalayan sea salt

  • More fresh chopped cilantro

  • Black sesame seeds

  1. Wash cucumbers and tomatoes, cut off ends of cucumber and spiral away.

  2. Place all in a bowl and season with salt

  3. Pour as much mango dressing as you want over the noodles and stir in

    1. NOTE as always, if you want a pretty serving bowl, mix it through in another bowl and then pour into serving bowl.

  4. Top with extra cilantro and sesame seeds and serve!

This dressing is super good on salads of course, but it also worked really well on lightly grilled white fish! Try it out! Make sure you sign up for my email list and tag me on any of these recipes you make on Instagram and use the hashtag #foodrebel #foodrebeleats
