4 of Our Favorite Salad Dressings

Published August 9th, 2016 by Kitchen Verde Team

Balsamic Reduction Dressing:

This dressing is great because it has the great flavor of balsamic vinegar but with a thick richness and a hint of sweet.

1 c balsamic vinegar

3 TBSP real maple syrup

 

Simply cook the vinegar and syrup over medium high heat until it begins to boil. When it begins to boil turn the heat to medium and cook down for about 30-40 minutes until it cooks down about half and has a thick, rich consistency.

This dressing is great on EVERYTHING!

 

Orange Ginger Dressing:

2/3 cup 100% pure orange juice (or use freshly squeezed)

1/3 cup 100% pure apple juice

1 tbsp apple cider vinegar

1 tbsp fresh minced ginger

1 tbsp fresh lime juice

1 tbsp ground flax

 

Throw all ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth. This dressing is great with everything but especially good on a savory salad, with some nutritional yeast or toasted nuts.

 

Walnut Vinaigrette (adapted from Dr. McDougal):

-1/4 c raisins

- ¼ c balsamic vinegar

- ½ c water

- 1 tsp Dijon mustard

- 1 garlic clove

- ¼ tsp Italian seasoning

- ¼ c walnuts

Put all ingredients in blender and blend for several minutes until very smooth.

We use this dressing with field greens, blueberries and walnuts.

 

 

Chipotle vinaigrette:

This is one of our FAVORITES!

Serves: 6

Ingredients

1/2 cup plain unsweetened almond milk

4 teaspoons ground flaxseed

2 tablespoons lemon juice

1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar

1/4 of 1 medjool date, pitted

1 small clove garlic

1 teaspoon white miso

2 teaspoons tomato paste

1/2 teaspoon chipotle chiles in adobo

1/2 teaspoon ground cumin

additional milk or water as needed

Instructions

Place all ingredients in a blender and blend on high speed until smooth. Let it sit for a minute and then check the thickness. Pour into a bottle or jar and refrigerate to thicken and allow flavors to develop.

This is the dressing we use on our burrito bowl. It’s great on ANY salad or rice bowl!
