    Salad dressing

    Primal Fuel
    Does anyone have any good primal salad dressings? I can make them at home, or if there is store brand, that would be ok too, as long as it isn't full of junk. Thanks!

    You can make mayo - Mark has a recipe on the site - it was a blog post sometime in the last month. I make a balsamic vinagrette

    2/3 EVOO
    1/3 balsamic
    add italian spices, salt and pepper to taste.

    It is my "go to" dressing
    There was another thread about salad dressings with recipes a few weeks ago too - you might do a search for it as well.

    There was a good thread in the recipe forum awhile back. In fact, if you search the Primal Blueprint Recipes forum for "salad dressing", you'll get a ton of ideas.

    I usually just throw together olive oil, dijon mustard, and minced garlic.

    Pesto thinned with some vinegar makes a good salad dressing. Another interesting idea is tahini thinned with some cumin, lemon juice and olive oil. (I think tahini is primal, someone correct me if I'm wrong)

    MAKES: ~ cup
    1 tsp Dijon-style mustard, smooth or grainy
    2 tbsp + 1 tsp wine vinegar
    cup olive oil
    1 tbsp flax seed oil
    Whisk mustard into vinegar. Add olive oil in a thin stream, whisking constantly until oil is emulsified. Whisk in
    flax oil, and use immediately.
    Variation: Mix 1 tsp of finely chopped fresh herbs (e.g., parsley, tarragon, thyme, basil, or oregano) into the
    basic recipe after the mix has emulsified.

    Make a batch of evoo mayo then add whatever flavor you're in the mood for....and you can just use it as mayo.
    Today I just added a squirt of mustard and it was yum.

    BUTTER.

    Chop some walnuts, toss them in a small pan with two tablespoons butter. It's good by itself, but I normally add crumbled blue cheese, boiled egg, blueberries or a tomato - sometimes some grated Parmesan cheese.

    Last night, I turned it into a porkchop salad.
