Scallion Mint Dressing

We really enjoyed this dressing made with scallion oil over a light steak salad – great lunch.  The longer you let the scallion oil sit, the better this will be.  Because the flavors are pretty strong, you really only need a little drizzle…it packs a punch.


Lemon-Mint Vinaigrette

Got this one from Eating Well, and it’s pretty good.  A little sharp, so I may cut back on the vinegar next time.  A good dressing for a Greek salad.

•    1/3 cup lemon juice
•    1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
•    1 pinch sugar
•    1 clove garlic, minced
•    1/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil
•    1/3 cup chopped fresh mint
•    1/8 teaspoon salt
•    Freshly ground pepper, to taste

Whisk lemon juice, mustard, sugar and garlic in a small bowl until blended. Drizzle in oil, whisking until blended. Stir in mint, salt and pepper.


Smoky Lemon Tahini Dressing

This was a dressing recipe I found in Bon Appetit, and we really liked it!  Pretty easy to make, and WW friendly at only 1 point a serving (one tablespoon).

  •     1 garlic clove, grated
  •     1/2 cup tahini (sesame seed paste)
  •     1/4 cup fresh lemon juice
  •     3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  •     1/8 teaspoon smoked paprika

Purée garlic, tahini, lemon juice, salt, paprika, and 3/4 cup water in a blender until smooth, adding water if needed to thin dressing.
