Healthy Salad Dressing Nigeria 2

I love salads of all kinds. I can eat veggies in pretty much any permutation.

  • Cabbage + Tomatoes + Cucumber
  • Carrots + Green Pepper + Cucumber + Tomatoes
  • Lettuce + Carrots + Cabbage + Green Pepper + Tomatoes
  • Carrots + Spinach + Avocado + Tomatoes

…you get the general idea.

I usually throw in some grilled chicken or some boiled eggs to make it a whole meal. Sometimes, I toss in some fruit like apples and eat it like that, sans dressing.

The one thing that wrecks a salad and transports it from a healthy meal to a non-healthy one is the salad dressing that is used.

Today, I am sharing an absolute favorite salad dressing. One that I have made over and over again.

Ingredients

  • Anchovies                                                                 1 Tin
  • Juice of two ripe limes
  • Honey                                                                        To Taste
  • Whole grain Mustard Seeds                                Teaspoon

You can substitute the limes with half a lemon if you prefer. I like limes because they are cheap and cheerful.

To prepare

Open the can. That’s the hard work done and now it gets really easy, lol. Break up the anchovies to smaller pieces. The fish comes with some oil and we use that as well. Combine with the lime juice and mustard seeds. Add some honey to taste. Voila it is ready! Drizzle over your salad.

I like this particular dressing because it balances the sweet, sour and salty. At the last minute, I added some black pepper. There are no hard and fast rules. Just anything that floats your boat.

Let me know if you like it!

Sounds delicious. I can’t wait to try them out. I love salads too and commercial dressing has always seemed to defeat the purpose. I usually slice fresh tomatoes or cucumber on top but I’m so ready to try these
