No More Boring Salads

What do you do if you have several days worth of salad ingredients in your fridge or your garden has an abundant supply and, you start to feel that I’m-so-bored feeling coming on? It is not cool to waste food even if it is the same as the last meal. So you need a range of dressing options to choose from – not the pretty frock type but the edible kind.  With a different raw dressing each time you could create a completely new taste and never notice the similar salad ingredients from the meal before.

Here’s a salad dressing with taste combinations you may not have tried before.

Cinnamon Vinaigrette
½ c cold-pressed extra-virgin olive oil or hemp or avocado
2 T balsamic or apple cider vinegar
1 T agave nectar or maple syrup or raw honey
½ t cinnamon
¼ c fresh basil
½ t Himalayan or celtic salt

Mix in blender on low speed. Check seasoning and drizzle over salad or coleslaw. Adding grated or chopped apple and raisins to the salad bowl would compliment this dressing. Also suits the stronger tasting greens such as rocket (arugula) and spinach.
