My Own Recipe for Exotic Asian Style Dressing - Eating Healthy Nutritious Food
Posted Apr 30 2008 11:01pm
I recently created this dressing out of boredom with my typical vinegar/oil combinations. I've given it to several friends to try and one called me the other day to get the recipe...which I didn't have!
I don't cook by measurements, when I'm creating, that is. I want to get on with eating healthy nutritious food, not labor over how I made it, ha! That's why this site isn't a cooking site. I love to cook and am very proficient at it, but I'm sort of like an abstract artist in that way, or a doodler with a notepad. I NEVER have any idea what I'm doing while I'm doing it. And 99.9% of the time, it turns out fabulous. I'd share all my wonderous recipes here if I only knew exactly what/how much goes into each thing.
But my friend's call challenged me to get in the kitchen (even in the midst of 5 kids and husband making their own lunches) and figure out what I'd done the first time to make this dressing. I'd feature a photo of it here, but unfortunately, it just looks, well, white!
Here's the ingredients. I hope you'll make and enjoy...
-1/3 cup of coconut oil. (If the oil is not melted, heat on the stovetop.)
**Let me add here that not all coconut oils are created equal! They vary GREATLY in taste depending on their purity. And since that is the featured ingredient in this recipe you'll want the purest and best. ** My source:
I began making my own salad dressings years ago by experiment. That was even before I knew anything about what MSG was and what it does to you. It's in just about every salad dressing out there; although, not all of them. It just seems that the homemade version always tastes so much better to me.
