Getting ourselves into what we’re calling a “salad rut” is an all-too specific, but oh so familiar place we find ourselves in from time to time. Of course, salad is an easy way to eat a bunch of veggies and a great way to use up whatever’s in the fridge. But it’s so easy to make the same salad over and over again, that we end up getting bored. So we asked wellness coach and cooking instructor, Katie Saleh, to help us whip up a citrus vinaigrette recipe that can get us out of our salad rut.
The beauty of this recipe is that it’s not only delicious, and basically fool-proof, but it’s also really versatile.
Citrus Sunrise Salad Dressing
We love this recipe because it’s impossible to mess up and really easy to throw together. And, chances are you already have most of these ingredients on hand. Instead of shaking up the dressing in a jar, we recommend whisking it in a bowl so that the kombucha doesn’t get too frothy. Other than that, there’s really no secret to it. We’ve found that this citrus vinaigrette recipe pairs well with both creamy foods like avocado, and bitter greens like chard and arugula.
- 1/8 cup olive oil
- 1/8 cup Citrus Sunrise
- 1/2 tablespoon Dijon mustard
- Juice of 1/2 a lemon
- 1/2 tsp honey
- 1/2 tsp salt
- Fresh cracked pepper to taste
Combine all of the ingredients in a bowl and whisk together. Finish with fresh cracked pepper.
- Cutting board
- Sharp knife
- Measuring cups and spoons
Pair this recipe with:
- Freshly sliced avocado and grapefruit
- Sustainably harvested pan roasted salmon
- Your favorite salad (pairs especially well with bitter greens like kale, chard, and arugula)
- Roasted beets
Those are just a few pairing suggestions to spark some ideas, but we’d love to see what you come up with. If you’re fresh out of Citrus Sunrise and want to try this recipe, shop with free shipping!
