Food photography depends on weather like I depend on wine while raising my children. Today was a very grey day with never ending rain. So, I digged through my “to post” folder and found this Orange Ginger Salad Dressing. It is sweetened by oranges and spiced by fresh ginger. It is so good it deserves a post of its own. I already used it in making Winter Fruit Kale Salad and Citrus Quinoa Salad. I guess it is that good!

MY LATEST RECIPES

It is my intent to post more of homemade versions of popular dressings and sauces this year. They are a bit scary to recreate because the flavour has to be close to the original unlike an impromptu unique recipe where I can do whatever I want. So far, on the list I have a Caesar dressing, peanut sauce, berry salad dressing and carrot ginger salad dressing.

This Orange Ginger Salad Dressing is perfect for winter because citrus is in season. My fruit basket seems to be only filled with apples, bananas, oranges, grapefruits, occasional pears and cantaloupe right now. Kids are enjoying frozen organic berries from Costco as well.

You need a blender to make this Orange Ginger Salad Dressing. I do not own a Blendtec or Vitamix but rather use more affordable Ninja Ultima. It is as powerful! I did have Blendtec blender for a bit and I say it is great. I gifted it to my mom who wad a tumour at the time and I wanted her to drink green smoothies daily. And she still does. Overall, you need a powerful blender when eating clean. It will last you forever!

Happy Friday! I plan on chilling at home this weekend and maybe we will go skiing on Sunday if it stops raining. I have this book on my nightstand right now. What more could I ask for?! Maybe a nice dinner made by not me?! Honey, I hope you are reading this.:)

  1. Wow, thank you for sharing this recipe! You have no idea how timely your response is! I was just talking to my Dr. and a dietician, who put me on a diet, but didn’t really give any advice or “working” recipes! Your site is so helpful as I learn how to navigate and cook healthy. It’s so hard when you’ve been cooking and eating one way and have to change your life around 180 degrees. So, thank you so much Olena!

    1. Hi Tatyana! I get it. As we get older it is so hard to break up habits but once you do and live new life for a while it is hard to imagine your “before” life. Like I used to smoke…I can’t even imagine how I could enjoy that when now I can’t even stand someone else smoking. Enjoy the recipes. healthy isn’t hard, just different from what you are used to.:)

  2. I am hopeless at making dressings on my own. Now I am so happy to have a recipe that looks so fresh and tasty and not a million ingredients. This doesn’t look intimidating and I can think of lots of salads with and without fruit in them that it would be really great with! Thanks!

  3. Looks delicious! I love making (or I should say, eating) homemade salad dressing and once you have a few good, easy recipes, it’s hard to eat store bought dressings (other than what comes in little pre-made salads like Trader Joe’s Southwest Salad- love that dressing.) What is the salad in the 3rd photo down? Looks like possibly arugula and quinoa? Please let us know the recipe, it looks fantastic!
