Balsamic Vinegarette

July 23, 2006 at 7:05 am 8 comments

During the week in the summer, this is my typical lunch. A big yummy salad. Someday I would love to have my own garden and grow all of this myself. This particular salad consisted of:

*Romaine hearts
*Summer squash
*Flax oil

Most of the time I keep the dressing simple. I just splash a little olive oil, balsamic and raw agave nectar on it and it’s good to go. When I’m feeling more ambitious, I whip up some vinaigrette. My absolute favorite dressing of all time is this one:

Balsamic Vinaigrette
Living Cuisine: The Art and Spirit of Raw Foods
Renee Underkoffler

6 T extra virgin olive oil
3 T balsamic vinegar
1 T apple cider vinegar
1 1/2 T maple syrup or raw honey
1 T nama shoyu
1 T white miso
1-2 cloves galic
1/4 cup chopped parsley
2 t oregano
Sun-dried sea salt to taste

In a blender, blend all ingredients until smooth. Store in a glass jar in refrigerator. Keeps for 3-4 days. To re-use, add a little water and shake.

    This looks really yummy and I want to try it. However … I can’t find nama shoyu or miso, so can you recommend a substitution? We are in a small semi-rural area, so the next time I head to “town” I will look. Our local grocery store (which is actually a good one) just doesn’t carry these items.

Words to Eat By

"It is easier to change a man's religion than to change his diet." -Margaret Mead

"I don't understand why asking people to eat a well-balanced vegetarian diet is considered drastic, while it is medically conservative to cut people open and put them on cholesterol lowering drugs for the rest of their lives." - Dean Ornish, MD

“Finish each day and be done with it. You have done what you could. Some blunders and absurdities no doubt crept in; forget them as soon as you can. Tomorrow is a new day; begin it well and serenely and with too high a spirit to be encumbered with your old nonsense.” – Ralph Waldo Emerson
