Instead of bottled dressings and marinades, which can be quite costly and filled with names you can't pronounce, try this recipe. You WILL like it! Most of the ingredients are probably already in your frig and pantry. If not, use your imagination and taste buds to improvise. Instead of apricot, try strawberry.
Apricot Ginger Salad Dressing or Marinade
1/2 cup apricot spreadable fruit or jam
3 Tbsp balsamic vinegar (I used pomegranate flavor)
1 1/2 Tbsp honey
1/2 Tbsp spicy brown mustard
1/2 tsp garlic powder
3 Tbsp canola or olive oil
1/2 cup apricot nectar (Usually in the juice or Mexican section)
1 Tbsp zested fresh ginger
salt and pepper to taste (if needed)
Put all the ingredients into a large measuring cup and whisk. Then put into a nice jar and refrigerate until time to use. This makes 8 fl oz and is enough for many salads.
