This is from a recipe on drfuhrman.com. It is the best vinaigrette I have ever tasted, healthy or not. Everyone who has tasted this salad dressing asks for the recipe. You need a high speed blender or food processor to make the dressing so the raisins and nuts blend with the rest of the ingredients. We have this dressing every day for lunch on a salad of romaine lettuce with extra toppings like green or red pepper, avocado, cucumber, grape tomatoes, pumpkin seeds, sunflower seeds, raw nuts, raisins, sesame seeds, ground flax seed, etc. We like the nuts left whole and put on the salad instead of putting them in the dressing but they should be included in the salad one way or the other to help the absorption of the nutrients in the salad. When I make it, I usually quadruple the dressing recipe and store it in glass jars in the refrigerator.
- 1⁄4 cup raisins
- 1⁄4 cup balsamic vinegar
- 1⁄2 cup water
- 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard (I like Grey Poupon)
- 1 garlic clove, chopped
- 1⁄4 teaspoon thyme
- 1⁄4 cup walnuts, chopped
- Place all ingredients in a high speed blender or food processor.
- Blend until well combined.
Very good. Threw everything in my nutribullet, very easy to make. I am new to dr. fuhrman's recipes. I did not know salad dressing without oil could be so good and easy to make. Thanks for sharing.
Very good recipe, I was amazed by how well it tasted and it's much better and tastes much healthier than store bought dressings. It's nice and thick which to my surprise I like. I'm use to those oil filled dressings but this is much better!!! Definitely try it as it takes no time to make in a blender. I used a Blentec blender.
I have been making this for a while now and my family loves it. I am not a fan of sweet dressing but the balance is nice and goes with any salad. I have put chia seeds in as well which ends up thickening the dressing and adds great nutrition!
