Meet my latest salad dressing obsession! This mint dressing is as refreshing as it gets – made with freshly squeezed lemon juice, extra virgin olive oil and plenty of fresh mint. Honey, Dijon mustard, and garlic give it an irresistible flavor.
This dressing is as light as a classic vinaigrette, but packed with lots of mint flavor. Of course, it’s also delicious on salads, and below are salad ingredients that go especially well with mint dressing.
This “dressing” is also a refreshing and slightly creamy sauce. I think it’s great on an orzo salad, a pita sandwich, or over cooked fish if you’re a fish eater.I’m curious how you use it.
One of my favorite local his salads is his fresh mint dressing (The Mixx’s Chisaya Mama is made with kale, arugula, quinoa, fennel, radishes and parmesan cheese).
I finally came up with my own fattoush her salad recipe and it’s so delicious I decided it deserved its own post.
Homemade salad dressings are generally much tastier than the old store-bought ones. With plenty of fresh mint, this tastes so fresh!
