First Do No Harm

Pomegranate Dijon Salad Dressing

Before Beginning: Of course this recipe will have pomegranate juice in it, and you have your choice of bottled juice or pomegranate juice powder. If you choose the bottled juice, you will  have to cook down a cup and a half of that juice into a quarter cup which can take anywhere from 30 to 40 minutes. If you use pomegranate powder, you can mix it up in less than a minute.

Also this is the first recipe in which we recommend MCT (medium chain triglycerides) oil. If you are dieting or just need extra energy, this oil burns up quickly and keeps you moving.

You will need a shaker jar.

Ingredients (all organic if possible)

Cup thick Pomegranate Juice (see below)
Cup MCT Oil
4 Scoops Better Stevia (optional)
1 Tablespoon Apple Cider Vinegar
1 teaspoon Dijon Mustard
teaspoon White Pepper
teaspoon
Celtic Sea Salt  

 

To make the thick pomegranate juice, take a cup and a half of bottled pomegranate juice and slowly cook it down to a quarter cup. Or, you can take cup of powdered pomegranate juice and add that to your shaker with a quarter cup of water.

Add everything else and shake for about a minute. You will make enough dressing for 4 to 5 average sized salads.

I call the Stevia "optional" because I tried them both. And personally, they were both good.

Kids love this one, by the way. This is a good way to introduce your kids to raw veggies. Cut them up small and mix them in well. A bit of red cabbage, bit of onion, some grated carrots or grated beats, small pieces of broccoli.

Cover them with this dressing and they will love it.

Health Notes: Besides the MCT oils being good for instant energy (and weight loss), they also make you a bit more sensitive to insulin/leptin and boost your immune system. The pomegranate juice and apple cider vinegar are great for the heart; pomegranate juice will help remove "sludge" from your arteries.
