Description

Most of the time, “accessories” like sauces, salsas, dressings, marinades, and chutneys get little, if any, thought. Yet often it is these little things that make the difference between an ordinary meal and an extraordinary one. This lowfat salad citrusy dressing can be made spicier by adding more than just a dash of cayenne. But as is, it is light and sweet and especially suited to leafy greens. Citrus fruits, such as mandarins, oranges and lemons, provide powerful Phytochemicals like flavonoids and polyphenols which may prevent inflammation and boost production of detoxifying enzymes in the body.


Scale

Ingredients

  • 2 Tbsp cider vinegar
  • 2 Tbsp freshly squeezed mandarin juice, may substitute fresh orange juice
  • 1 Tbsp honey
  • 1 Tbsp canola oil
  • 1/8 tsp onion powder
  • Dash of cayenne, or to taste
  • Salt to taste

Instructions

  1. In a small bowl, combine all of the ingredients.
  2. Blend vigorously with a wire whisk.
  3. Serve over salad or fresh cut-up vegetables.
  4. Store in a covered container in the refrigerator for up to 1 week. Whisk thoroughly before serving.

Notes

  • Citrus fruits provide powerful Phytochemicals like flavonoids and polyphenols. Flavoniods can be found in apples, citrus fruits, onions, soybeans and soy products (tofu, soy milk, edamame, etc.), coffee and tea and may inhibit inflammation and tumor growth; may aid immunity and boost production of detoxifying enzymes in the body. Polyphenols can be found in green tea, grapes, wine, berries, citrus fruits, apples, whole grains and peanuts and may prevent cancer formation, prevent inflammation and work as antioxidants. These powerful phytochemicals, are naturally occurring plant chemicals (phyto means plant in Greek). They provide plants with color, odor and flavor. Once we eat them, however, research shows they can influence the chemical processes inside our bodies in helpful ways.
