3 Healthy Salad Dressings!

A salad without dressing is almost unthinkable. But often your healthy bowl of greens is not well served by commercial dressings filled with unhealthy ingredients such as white sugar, white vinegar, poor quality refined oils and a load of preservatives and flavour enhancers. With your next salad, try one of my 3 super healthy dressings that are packed with health benefits.

 

Orange, Poppy and Hemp Dressing


1/4 cup      organic fresh squeezed orange juice


2 tsp          Dijon or whole grain mustard


2 tbsp        cider vinegar


2 tbsp        hemp oil


2 tbsp        organic olive oil


1 tsp          poppy seeds 


                  sea salt, to taste

Put these ingredients in a mason jar and shake.

 

Easy Olive Mustard Vinaigrette


2 tbsp       apple cider vinegar 


1 tbsp       wholegrain mustard


3 tbsp      organic olive oil


                 a pinch of sea salt


1/2 tsp      honey (optional)

Put these ingredients in a mason jar and shake.

 

World’s Healthiest Caesar Dressing


This is truly a heart-saving salad dressing. The fish oil goes well with the anchovies in this garlicky medley. The celery gives the dressing bulk and allows you to move away from using raw egg.

1/8 cup      fish oil, lemon flavoured

1/2 cup      organic olive oil 


2                cloves garlic 
(pressed)

1                celery stalk, chopped fine


1/4 cup      water 


2 tbsp        lemon juice 


1 tbsp        wheat-free tamari

3               anchovy fillets


1                date (or 1 tsp of honey)

Using a blender, whip all the dressing ingredients together.
