Mild Moroccan Spiced Dressing

(pictured with Snacking Salad with Apricots and Roasted Almonds)

1/4 cup (60 mL) fresh lemon juice
2 Tbsp (30 mL) natural soy or organic yogourt
1 1/2 tsp (7 mL) honey
1/4 tsp (1 mL) sea salt (to taste)
1/4 tsp (1 mL) ground cumin
1/4 tsp (1 mL) turmeric
1/4 tsp (1 mL) cinnamon
1/4 tsp (1 mL) ground ginger
1/4 cup (60 mL) flaxseed or extra-virgin olive oil

These ingredients provide so much more nutrition than a commercial dressing. Cumin, ginger, and cinnamon have a multitude of healing properties, including aiding digestion and helping to reduce blood pressure.

Whisk together lemon juice, yogourt, honey, and spices. Slowly whisk in oil to a smooth, creamy consistency. The dressing will develop a rich yellow colour over time, adding beautiful rich tones to grains and vegetables.

Makes 2/3 cup (160 mL)
