This dressing is a variation of a dressing from the book La Dolce Vegan which is a good jumping off point for anyone wanting to try a vegan diet. I have altered and added some ingredients to make it more nutritious by adding fresh turmeric and changing the sugar to local honey. This dressing is great on baby mixed greens or any salad you are making. There’s quite a lot of healthy oils but for oil free just replace with purified water.
· ¼ cup extra virgin olive oil
· ¼ cup flax or hemp oil
· ¼ cup red wine vinegar
· ½ tsp. Dijon mustard
· 1 tsp. ground cumin
· 1 Tbs. grated fresh turmeric (or 1 tsp. dry)
· 1 garlic clove, minced or chopped finely
· ¼ tsp. sea salt
· ¼ tsp. black pepper (or 10 turns to activate the turmeric)
· ½ tsp. local honey
Put all ingredients into a dressing bottle. Cap and shake well before using. Makes approximately ¾ of a cup.
