Growing up I hated salad dressing, I have no idea why - perhaps it was the vinegar I disliked or the creamy bottled dressing that so often accompany salads. I do very much love a good dressing these days, and I always make my own using a shaker, or blending it.
250g of freshly squeezed lemon and orange juice combo
150g of golden flax seed oil
100g of hulled tahini or 4-5 Tbs of hemp seeds or combo
A splash of Braggs seasoning or salt to taste
freshly ground black pepper
1-2 tsp of honey
If using tahini only you can combine all in a shaker
If using hemp seeds, place all in the thermomix (or any blender) and blend for a minute
Keep airtight in the fridge for 4-5 days
Variations can include adding some herbs like basil, mint or parsley to the blended dressing.
I love this dressing as its super tasty, but its also super nutritious, with Vit C and alkaline properties of lemon juice, calcium and B Vitamins from the tahini, and omega 3 from the flax oil and hemp seeds - this really is a superfood salad dressing!
I wanted to make my Mum a beautiful salad for her birthday today lunch today and I know how she loves potatoes.
Potatoes can get a pretty bad rap these days as high protein mania overtakes sensible eating patterns, which can and should include some 'carb'. Who can resist the humble potato?
