Dressings are my kind of thing when it comes to salads. I often try something different as you already know. Remember the Avocado Poached Egg Salad with Grapefruit? I love that dressing!
Today I wanted to convince my family of eating frisée salad, which is difficult to love because it is kind of bitter and chewy, best thing about it is, that it looks fun - at least for decoration under raw meat my husband and son thinks. What a difficult plan I had in mind but believe it or not they ate it all and each time they like it the recipe passes and can be published. Tough crowd !
50 gr fresh corn salad, washed
4 tbsp organic olive oil from NOAN
1/2 orange, juiced
1 -2 tbsp agave sirup
1 tsp light colored miso paste - optional
1 tsp white vinegar
Garlic, salt and chili
1/2 a head of a curly endive salad or frisée salad, washed
1/2 a ripe mango, peeled and in slices
Mix everything for the dressing with an immersion blender until you get the consistency of mayonnaise. The Miso paste is a a great seasoning for a lot of dishes, dressings, soups and sauces and keeps in the fridge very well. Season with salt and garlic paste. I use this fermented garlic, that is lightly salted and much better to digest than the fresh garlic.Season to taste and drizzle over your salad, the sliced mango brings some sweetness to it and eliminates the bitterness. The oil I use for many years now is called NOAN and the story behind it will inspire you, the oil is absolutely amazing and I buy it by 5 liter canisters.
This is an egg free, healthy and tasty alternative to mayo and looks just like spring itself.
Try the mayonnaise once as a dip in summer for your raw vegetables ! You can substitute the corn salad with other salads but it is the greenest, spinach will work just as fine.
