Allow us to introduce you to the ultimate summer sidekick: the amazingly zesty, summer salad dressing Is this refreshing concoction just like a cool breeze on a hot day? We can’t say that for sure, but we can say that your taste buds will not be disappointed with the flavor.

This salad dressing is a harmonious blend of sweet and tangy coconut aminos and bright basil and green onion, with a subtle garlicky kick. It’s like a zesty, summery party of flavors in every bite! Because the dressing has so many assertive ingredients, it can handle greens like kale, chard, red or green cabbage, and romaine. Additionally, adding fruit to the salad can bring a lovely sweetness that complements the acidic nature of the dressing.

You don’t need a lot of salt because the coconut aminos add a rich, savory flavor, while the herbs bring a burst of freshness. This recipe is yet another reason why you should not settle for a bland, boring salad dressing. Have a love affair with flavor this summer and give this dressing a shot!
