Sauces and dressings are the key to making summer salads taste great! And by making your own dressings at home, you will be eating foods that are live and fresh–and contain much more nutrition, flavor, and life force than packaged foods.
Place in Vita-mix or blender:
- 1/4 pineapple, peeled and cored, and cut into chunks
- 1/4 cup Italian parsley
- 3 sprigs spearmint
- 1/2 banana pepper
- 1/2 t. powdered ginger (or 1″ slice fresh ginger root)
- 6 T. olive oil
- 1/2 t. natural salt
- Just enough water to allow for proper blending
Blend ingredients on high until there are no lumps. Serve this light and lively dressing over salads, rice dishes, and cooked vegetables. For extra zing, try adding a few drops of lemon or lime essential oils.
Serve within several hours, store in refrigerator if storage is necessary. Serves 2.
