Orange Marmalade Salad Dressing Recipe
Tuscan Supper Salad with Orange Marmalade Salad Dressing
Dear Rita: I thoroughly enjoyed listening and watching you during the Mason Garden Club meeting Wednesday evening at Fergusons. I’d like the recipe for the orange marmalade salad dressing you served us with the orange marmalade. I thought it was fabulous and am very interested in obtaining the ingredients.
I’ve subscribed to your newsletter and visited your website (which is awesome). I know I’ll look forward to receiving your newsletters and trying the many items posted on your site.
Hi Celia: Here’s the recipe for the Orange Marmalade Salad Dressing. It’s the best! Thanks for coming to the meeting. I enjoyed myself as much as you ladies did.
I’m using black beans here since they are a good source of fiber, which helps lower cholesterol (as are most other legumes). The high fiber in beans prevents blood sugar levels from rising too rapidly after a meal. They are a good source of protein, too. And if you’re sensitive to sulfites, black beans help here. Sulfites are a preservative added to prepared foods – you’ll see them a lot in deli prepared salads, etc. Black beans help detoxify sulfites. Black beans have lots of antioxidants – about the same amount found in grapes and cranberries.
ORANGE MARMALADE SALAD DRESSING RECIPE
Go to taste here
3/4 cup good quality orange marmalade
1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
1 generous tablespoon minced red onion
1/3 cup rice wine vinegar, unseasoned or more to taste
Couple sprigs fresh orange thyme, chopped (optional)
1 cup Canola oil
Combine everything but oil. Whisk in oil. Store in refrigerator. Shake well before serving.
Make layers on a platter and drizzle dressing over your choice of any of these:
Mixed baby greens – lay these on the platter and then add your choice of toppings:
Julienned bell peppers
Toasted chopped nuts
Generous amount of Feta or other cheese of your choice
1 can drained, rinsed and drained again black beans
Flax seeds (optional but good)
(Read labels. Sometimes beans are processed with sugar, which should be rinsed off).
