Salata Sosu! Salad Dressings

Again, another recipe from A Gluten Free Taste of Turkey by Sibel Hodge, as part of the review process for I am, Indeed. More information about the book will be available on 30 January.

Salad dressings
There is little more to spice up a meal than a good salad.  You can use a packaged, prewashed set of greens, and with a few simple ingredients make a memorable salad!

Here are several different recipes – all that I have tried and a few variations!  In all of these, I mixed the dressing in a large bowl, then added the greens and tossed to coat – then served the dressed salad up into individual serving bowls.

Lemon/Olive Oil Dressing:
• 1 teaspoon of freshly squeezed lemon juice
• 1 tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil
• Salt to taste

Whisk together – toss greens with the dressing, serves 2.
** I added 1 tablespoon of feta cheese, crumbled for a nice variation and salty punch**

Spicy Citrus Dressing:
• 1 teaspoon of freshly squeezed lemon juice
• 1 tablespoon freshly squeezed orange juice
• 1 tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil
• ½ teaspoon of ground black pepper – freshly ground is REALLY important here.
Whisk together – toss over greens, toss to coat – serves 4

Pomegranate Dressing:

• 1 tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil
• 1 – 2 teaspoons of pomegranate syrup – Here I had to use concentrated pomegranate juice, and I tossed in a few of those pretty ruby red pomegranate seeds for color, flavor and crunch.
• Salt to taste
Whisk together, add greens and pomegranate seeds and toss to coat.  Serves 4.

Sweet and Spicy Dressing:
• 1 tablespoon of extra virgin olive oil
• 1 tablespoon of honey
• 1 teaspoon of lime juice
• 1 teaspoon of minced garlic
• ¼ teaspoon of red chilli flakes
• 1 teaspoon of tomato puree
• Salt to taste
Whisk together, add greens and I used toasted almonds for crunch.
