Creamy citrus ginger dressing is the perfect dressing to give your salad or veggies a nice kick of flavor.
Can you believe it is already January? I don’t know about anyone else, but I ate one too many sweets these past few months and I’m ready to get back to eating a little better.
Now that the holiday rush is over, I’m ready to share some new dressing recipes. Making homemade dressings is so easy and often times tastes even better without all the preservatives.
Is ginger healthy?
Ginger is a flowering plant that originated from China. It is often referred to as ginger root. Ginger is one of the most healthiest spices because it is loaded with nutrients and bioactive compounds. Gingerol is the main bioactive compound which has powerful anti-inflammatory and antioxidant effects.
This creamy citrus ginger dressing is a nice change from the boring dressings, and it’s sure to give your salads and vegetables a nice kick.
