Salad w/ Homemade Chunky Mango Citrus Dressing

It's seems like I am saying this a lot lately, but again I could not post yesterday, due to some sort of technical problem with my computer. Actually, not just some sort of problem, my entire computer has passed on to a better place. Computer heaven, maybe? I don't know, but I am now posting this blog on a new computer! So, I hope that you will forgive me one last time? Or, should I say, one more time? Ouch, I hope this is the last time.
Anyway, let's talk greens. As in salad greens. We are making a Green Salad with Homemade Chunky Mango Citrus Dressing.
Green Salad

Green Lettuce (your favorite)
Endive Lettuce
1 Roma Tomato
Red Onion
Corn Niblets
Nacho Chips

Homemade Chunky Mango Citrus Dressing 
2 large Mangos, peeled and diced
1/4 oz Fresh Mint Leaves, chopped
4 tablespoons Green Onions. cut thinly
12 oz Sweet Chili Sauce (Mae Ploy)
1/2 cup Orange Juice or Orange, Strawberry, Banana Juice
Peel mangoes.
Cut the mango from the bone that runs through the 
center of it by slicing down the side of the mango
around the bone. Then, slice each piece of mango.
Now, cut through the slices sideways. 
Pull the leaves off of the mint. Put all the leaves in a 
small, tight bundle, and chop into small pieces.
Put the mango and mint in your bowl.
Chop your green onion and put it in the bowl.
Add the sweet chili sauce and the juice to your bowl.
Pour the ingredients in a blender, and pulse until 
Mango pieces are loosely pureed.
Pour your dressing back into your bowl, cover, and place
in the refrigerator overnight.
 Put your salad together, as you like. 
Serve dressing on the side when served.
