Sweet Red Onion Vinaigrette and Balsamic Tamari Salad Dressing
These two fantastic salad dressings are great to have on hand for a quick and delicious salad! I like to prepare them when I am making a supper salad and then I store the extra in the fridge to use as we like. Thanks to Tillie Schock and my Auntie Lorna for the recipe inspiration!
Sweet Red Onion Vinaigrette:
1/2 small red onion
1 c avocado oil or extra virgin olive oil
1 tsp dry mustard
1 tsp sea salt
1/4 c maple syrup
1/4 c apple cider vinegar
2 TBSP water
Add all the ingredients to a blender, and blend until smooth. Pour dressing over the salad just before serving. Stores well refrigerated in a mason jar for a couple weeks.
A few combinations that are delicious with this salad dressing are:
- Romaine lettuce, 1 orange (peeled and sliced), and 1/2 c toasted pecans
- Baby greens with strawberry slices or mango and avocado cubes
Balsamic Tamari Salad Dressing
1/3 avocado oil or extra virgin olive oil
1/3 tamari sauce (low-sodium, gluten free)
1/3 balsamic vinegar
2 garlic cloves, crushed or minced
Combine all the ingredients in a mason jar, and shake to emulsify. Pour on salad immediately before serving. Stores well refrigerated.
Happy Salad Making!
