Fresh Salad Dressings

Spring is finally here! Yea!

As the seasons change and more local produce becomes available, I love to bring more salads into my diet.  The combinations of salad ingredients are virtually endless.  Add this to how many different salad dressings we can easily make with just a few more ingredients, and it's easy to eat a unique and delicious salad every day.

Here are some salad dressing recipes that I've been experimenting with lately. Enjoy!

Fresh Salad Dressings

Curry Salad Dressing:

1 cup flax oil

1/3 cup raw organic apple cider vinegar

2 cloves garlic - finely chopped

3 tsp. curry powder

1/2 tsp. sea salt

Combine above ingredients in a jar and shake thoroughly.

I like this dressing over a salad of fresh lettuce greens, roasted eggplant cubes, orange sections and cashews.

The Spicy and Fresh

1 cup flax oil

1/3 cup raw organic apple cider vinegar

1 tsp. sea salt

2 cloves minced garlic

1/2 tsp. cayenne

2 Tbsp. fresh chopped dill

2 Tbsp. fresh chopped oregano

Mix all ingredients in a mason jar and shake.  Let stand for 2 hours in the fridge before shaking again and using. 

This dressing is great with a salad of arugula, walnuts, and tomato wedges.

Creamy Avocado Dressing

1 avocado

2 Tbsp. fresh lemon juice

up to a 1/4 cup water to thin

4 Tbsp. organic olive oil

3 Tbsp. sesame oil

2 tbs. chives or green onions chopped

2 Tbsp. chopped fresh parsley

sea salt to taste

Blend in a food processor, chill, and serve.

I've been tossing this dressing with diced zucchini and grape tomatoes. Then I put that mixture over a bed of baby power greens like kale, spinach, chard and then top with pumpkin seeds or feta.  Yum!
