Get ready to add a little zesty zing to your salad! The bright notes of citrus and fresh ginger come alive in this beautiful blend of ingredients. It’s great to find salad dressings like this once you finish cleansing, especially since there are only a few ingredients that are not cleanse approved. If you have cleansed before, you know that making salad dressings is incredibly easy. That means that you can use your experience making salad dressings and incorporate other ingredients that you couldn’t enjoy while cleansing.
If you wanted a mustardy flavor during your cleanse, you had to use mustard powder. Now that you’re not adhering to a raw vegan diet, go ahead and add some high quality dijon mustard to your salad dressings. It adds extra creaminess and an assertive flavor that pairs beautifully with vibrant flavors like citrus and ginger. This dressing also calls for rice wine vinegar, which offers a subtle sweetness to balance the inherent, tart vinegary flavor. We’re positive that you’re going to want to dress every salad you make from now on with this dressing. If we’re wrong, that’s perfectly fine, but we know flavors and we’re confident about the ones in this recipe! Let us know what you think about it in the comments.
