Ginger Date Salad Dressing Recipe


posted by on Raw Recipes


This is one of my favorite salad dressings and it has a lot of soul and history. This was the house dressing used at Toronto Sprouts. It was the only salad dressing we usually had and one that was loved by all. I think Marie, Sprout Mama, first created it and others of us in the kitchen helped with its evolution. It probably evolved and changed until the recipe was finally written down by me. Until that point the recipe was passed down as an oral tradition: “Put in a handful of dates, a pinch of this, smigeon of that, squeeze a couple lemons and fill it up with water to about here and blend, now taste and adjust..”  was how it used to go.. as did many of the recipes in that kitchen. But I made lots of notes and now thankfully tradition is saved. ; )  And Thank you Marie for those wonderful soulful kitchen experiences!!  


..and so, Here it is, our favorite dressing – pure deliciousness!!
