Ginger Dijon Vinaigrette Salad Dressing

by Domestic Soul, Nov 22, 2011

Dinner last night was amazing. So delicious. So nutritious. So easy to make!

I like to keep a stash of chopped vegetables in the house. It makes for a quick dinner fix when you’ve had a rough day and you just can’t bear the thought of standing in the kitchen to make dinner. I think we’ve all had those days, right? My vegetable stash saves me from ordering takeout on those nights. All I have to do is open the refrigerator and pull a handful of veggies out of each bowl and it’s insta-salad. I love it. Top with some leftover meat and you’ve got a super-convenient, easy dinner. Here was my dinner yesterday:

This salad was jam packed with vitamin and mineral goodness. I started off with some spring mix salad and topped that with about half an orange pepper, celery, mushrooms, avocado and some sliced steak that was pan seared in coconut oil. Then topped it all off with my quick and easy homemade ginger dijon vinaigrette salad dressing – which takes about 30 seconds to make. The recipe is below.

But more importantly, lets take a look at the nutrition packed in this meal:

Not too shabby, eh? I have to think that’s probably better than the takeout I could have had if I didn’t have my awesome veggie stash – heh!

But more importantly, here’s the quick and easy ginger dijon vinaigrette salad dressing. I use this one because I usually have all of these ingredients in my house, but things can be easily substituted to suit what you already have in your house. Like all of my recipes, it’s not an exact science. If you think it’s too acidic, add some more oil. Not acidic enough? Add more vinegar. You get the point. Let your taste buds rule!

  • [...] 7. Ginger Dijon Vinaigrette This recipe should only be used by those Paleo followers that like the taste of ginger as well as dijon mustard. That’s because when the two of these combine it forms a taste that will definitely perk up your mouth and make you pay attention. Olive oil and apple cider vinegar are used to create the classic vinaigrette backdrop, but what you’ll really taste is the ground ginger mixed with the dijon mustard. Try this on a steak salad like the one shown on the recipe page. It’s nice to get a half and half mix of meaty protein and fresh vegetables. [...]
