If you’ve never explored the taste of the salad dressing that is both sweet and savory, you’re in for a treat. End your days of the same boring salad dressing and wake up your salads with exciting flavors that will stimulate your taste buds. To put a little flavor in your next meal, use these ideas to create an unbelievable dish.
PEAR AND GORGENZOLA: If you’re looking for a sweet and tangy salad dressing for your next meal, pairing fruits and cheese is a combination you will love. Sweet pear juice and gorgonzola cheese play off each other to produce the perfect salad dressing. Simply combine 1/3 cup of extra virgin olive oil, 2 tablespoons of fresh pear juice, 1 ½ tablespoons of white balsamic vinegar, gorgonzola cheese to taste, fresh ground pepper and salt. Mix with a whisk and pour liberally over your favorite salad combination.
SWEET AND SOUR: Give your bland spinach salad a new twist with a fruity and sweet salad dressing that pairs well with your favorite salad additions. Fresh, simple ingredients combine to produce a dressing that has the perfect sweet and tangy mixture. Combine 1 tablespoon of fresh lemon juice, 2 tablespoons of rice vinegar, a dash of vegetable oil and sweetener, such as 1 packet of Sugar Twin Granulated White. The sweetener compliments the tart flavors of the lemon and vinegar. Pour your dressing over a single serve salad and mix. Don’t let the minimal ingredients fool you. This dressing packs a punch.
LIGHT CITRUS: This recipe is one of the simplest dressings to make on a whim. Light citrus dressing combines the juice and zest from your favorite citrus fruits with a small amount of oil to create a savory and tart dressing that will wake your salad up immediately. This dressing is perfect for any salad fixings, even those with seafood and chicken added. If you find the dressing a little too tart just add a packet of Sugar Twin to sweeten things up.
SWEET DIJON: Honey Dijon has been around for years and has made its way from a marinade to a salad dressing. Savory and sweet, this salad dressing is the perfect compliment to salads that have hearty vegetables. It also pairs well with salads that contain meat, such as grilled chicken or steak medallions. To make this dressing, just combine equal parts Dijon mustard, apple cider vinegar and olive oil. Finally, add a sweetener, such as Sugar Twin, to taste. Rigorously mix and pour over your favorite salad.
HONEY GINGER: Add a bit of Asian flair to your meal with a simple and delicious honey ginger salad dressing. These two bold tastes pair together with a harmony only your taste buds will understand. Combine ½ a cup of vegetable oil and rice vinegar with ¼ cup of honey and 2 tablespoons of finely grated, fresh ginger root. Mix well, and then salt to taste. Pour over your favorite salad for an unforgettable dressing. Remember, honey will solidify when refrigerated.
