Eric’s Salad Dressings

Salad dressings can be easily made at home, who buy that bottled salad dressings from your supermarket. Most contain plain white sugar or even worse – aspartame, the artificial sugar. It is surprising how many foods you but that are processed in your supermarket contains artificial sugars. Here are a few of my favorite salad dressing recipes. Use preferably the freshest of ingredients for the best flavors

CAESAR SALAD DRESSING

  • 1 cup natural yoghurt
  • 3 garlic cloves, roasted (or not)
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup wholegrain mustar
  • 2 tbsp apple juice concentrate (or puree apples
  • ¼ tsp sea salt
  • cracked pepper to taste

Method

  • Mix ingredients together – keeps in fridge up to a week.
  • Can be processed in blender if you like

UNIVERSAL SALAD DRESSING                                      

  • The juice of one small lemon
  • 1 Tblsp of extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 small clove of garlic chopped finely
  • A small sprig of fresh parsley
  • Freshly ground black pepper to suit
  • Sea salt to suit
  • Variations: Add a dash of Tamari or chilli sauce

SPICY SALAD DRESSING

I like this one with grilled chicken or tofu on a bed of salad; finely shredded lettuce, rocket, sprouts, carrot, tomato, etc. Simply place the salad of choice on a platter and top with a little chicken (or fish, tofu) you grill and top with this delicious salad dressing. Enjoy.
