Salad Daze

Upgrade your salad game this week: chop salads, wilted salads, lettuce wraps; heck, we use lettuce for dipping in humus and baba ganoush! Salad turnips and kohlrabi are also great as cracker substitutes and grated or thinly sliced they improve any salad. Recently, we've been really digging grated beets and cheese with a homemade ranch. To help you embrace your inner rabit, here are few easy-peasy salad dressing recipes. Don't like what you see? The trusty Martha Stewart has loads of recipes here.

Rhubarb Vinaigrette

1/4 cup honey
1/2 cup water
4 stalks rhubarb (about 2 loosely packed cups), cut into thin slices
1/4 cup red wine vinegar
Zest of one lemon
1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
Pinch coarse sea salt
Several twists freshly ground pepper

Heat water and honey over medium heat. When the mixture begins to boil, add rhubarb and boil five minutes more, stirring often. Stir in vinegar and lemon zest, and cook five to 10 more minutes, until dressing is reduced by about half. Remove from heat, and let cool slightly. Whisk the olive oil into the dressing. Season with salt and pepper. Serve warm or cold over fresh salad greens.  Yields about 2 cups. 

Lime Vinaigrette

This is our go-to, salad dressing. It's fast, easy and we almost always have the ingredients on hand. I use our immersion blender to get a nice emulsion, but a whisk does just fine.
2 parts olive oil
1 part balsamic vinegar
1 part lime (or lemon) juice (fresh is best, but bottled will do in a pinch)
A good squirt of Dijon mustard or a couple pinches of powdered mustard
1-3 garlic cloves, pealed and smashed
A glug of maple syrup
A few turns of the pepper grinder
Lots of salt

Homemade Ranch

1/2 cup mayonnaise or yogurt
1/3 cup apple cider vinegar
OR 3/4 cup buttermilk (instead of mayo and vinegar)
1/4 cup chopped dill and/or parsley
1 Tablespoon salt
1 Tablespoon maple syrup
1 Tablespoon chopped scallion, onion, or shallot
Plenty of black pepper

Ginger Miso

This one is great for kale salad with grated turnips, radishes, scallions, and KOHLRABI!
2 Tablespoons miso paste
1/2 cup rice, white wine, or apple cider vinegar
2 Tablespoons olive oil
1/4 cup soy sauce
1 Tablespoon pealed and minced ginger
2-3 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 Tablespoon maple syrup

Happy munching!
