Apricot Ginger Salad Dressing

As promised, here's the apricot ginger homemade salad dressing that was mentioned in the previous post.  How did I not know how easy and inexpensive making my own salad dressing could be?  ALL these years, and they are many, I've been searching for the tastiest, healthiest drizzle for my salads.  I had it all along.  "There is no place like home"!

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.
