My go-to salad dressing consists of just:
- pureed preserved lemon
- fresh lemon juice
- extra virgin olive oil
- chopped fresh garlic
To make this dressing: Mix these ingredients in a small jar and shake. Then just add a little more of this or that, until you get the taste you like.
I use Preserved Lemon and Garlic Dressing for all kinds of different salads and much more. For example:
- Instead of dipping artichoke leaves in butter, dip them in this dressing (slightly warmed).
- For a super summer side dish, mix this dressing with cooked/cooled artichoke hearts (from Trader Joes, in frozen section), chopped olives, chopped red bell peppers, and torn basil leaves.
- To cook shrimp scampi.
- To season cooked fresh asparagus.
NUTRITION TIP: Asparagus and the garlic are rich in prebiotic fiber, which we should eat more of and here’s why.
Enjoy and be healthy!
