holiday salad dressing - with a kick





i found this salad dressing recipe over at plant powered kitchen
i've been eating this salad all week with a hunk of homemade bread.
i really hope you like it.
below her recipe, are the small changes i made.



1/2 cup unsweetened applesauce
2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
1 tbsp balsamic vinegar
1 tsp mild miso (ex: brown rice miso)
3/4 – 1 tsp dijon mustard
1/4 tsp cumin
1/8 tsp cinnamon
1 1/2 tbsp pure maple syrup (or more to sweeten to taste if desired)
1/4 tsp (rounded) sea salt (or more to taste)
freshly ground black pepper to taste

whisk all the ingredients together and refrigerate.

my changes:  i only used 1 T of apple cider vinegar and i omitted the miso and used 2 T of maple syrup.

tomorrow i have some natural holiday decor pics for you.

  1. I love salad , but being in the midwest, it is hard for me to eat salad in the colder months. I love the dressing recipe! I may just have to eat a salad. Truth be told, I make salad smoothies all winter long and then resume eating salads in the spring. Naughty isn't it...LOL

  2. Have you shared your homemade bread recipe? I'm not really liking what I find ready made in the market. The salad dressing sounds amazing...I am a salad freak. ~Lina

  5. I SO missed you and apparently missed a lot of wonderful posts! You look good, your house looks fantastic and I sure wish I had that salad on my table right now! Thanks for the inspiration with your comment today. You are so right, this journey is a part of us all. Thanks for the reminder.

    Hope you have a wonderful thanksgiving. You're such a beautiful friend, truly. xo

  6. I am LOVING these daily blog posts! Your recipes are very helpful and quite easy to make and help alleviate some of the fear I have of coming up with ideas for non-meat meals.

  7. This recipe sounds good. I happen to have some Miso on hand and cannot wait to try this. I eat a salad of some sort almost every day, but have never used Miso in a dressing before. Have you ever tried Bragg's salad dressing or Bragg's apple cidar vinegar? At first, I wasn't crazy about their dressing, but I gotta tell ya, my kids and I are literally addicted ... going through at least a bottle a week. My favorite is plain ol' quinoa with some spinach, red onion, olives, shredded or julianne carrot, topped with Bragg's Healthy Vinagrette. I too am enjoying the daily posts! Thanks.

  10. The salad looks so delicious, I think I have to wait until after breakfast before clicking on your blog. ;^) I enjoy making my own salad dressings so I may give this one a try since I have all the ingredients at home. I am always eating the little applesauce cups as a snack, they are so handy for recipes as well.

    I look forward to seeing your decor, I always love the posts of your home.
