What Does A Nutritionist Do?

Let’s face it, eating salads day in and day out can get a little repetitive. That’s why I’ve developed a range of salad dressings to help you spice things up. Feel free to prepare a big batch at the start of the week and store in an air-tight glass jar in the fridge.


MACADAMIA, LEMON & HONEY

WHAT YOU NEED:

  • 1/4 cup macadamia oil
  • 1/4 cup lemon juice
  • 2 tbsp. honey
  • 2tsp. finely grated lemon zest (optional)

Whisk all ingredients together in a small bowl. Pair with grilled chicken and/or green salad.


HERB VINAIGRETTE

WHAT YOU NEED:

  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 tbsp. white wine vinegar
  • 1 tbsp. finely chopped mint
  • 1 tbsp. finely chopped flat leaf parsley
  • 1 tsp. honey

    Pop all ingredients together in a small jar and shake well to combine. This dressing pairs perfectly with green salads.

CREAMY AVOCADO

WHAT YOU NEED:

  • 1 ripe avocado
  • Juice of 1 large lime
  • 1 generous tbsp. Natural Coconut Yoghurt

Whisk all ingredients together in a small bowl. This recipe pairs beautifully with rainbow slaw, Mexican food and sweet potato.


RASPBERRY DRESSING

WHAT YOU NEED:

  • 150g raspberries (fresh or frozen)
  • 2 tsp. lemon juice
  • 2 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tbsp. red wine vinegar
  • 1 tsp. honey (optional)

Combine all ingredients in a food processor, pulse until combined. Pairs beautifully with any salad that accompanies an animal protein source.


HONEY, LEMON & MUSTARD

WHAT YOU NEED:

  • 1/4 cup lemon juice.
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil.
  • 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard
  • 1 tbsp. honey
  • 1 clove garlic, grated (optional)

Combine all ingredients in a small jar, shake well to combine. Serve with any salad – I personally love this one with legumes i.e. chickpeas etc.


CREAMY MINT & LIME

WHAT YOU NEED:

  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 lime, juiced
  • 1 cup fresh mint leaves
  • 1/2 ripe avocado, seed and skin removed
  • 1 tsp. honey (optional)

Whisk all ingredients together in a food processor. If you find the mixture is too thick, thin to desire consistency using 1 tsp. of water or lime juice at a time. Pair with a potato salad.


MEXICAN SALAD DRESSING

WHAT YOU NEED:

  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1 tbsp. lime juice
  • 1 tbsp. lemon juice
  • 1 tbsp. honey
  • 1/2 tsp. Celtic sea salt

  • 2 tbsp. crushed coriander
  • 1 tsp. ground cumin
  • Pinch cayenne pepper

Combine all ingredients in a small bowl. Whisk together to combine. Pair with Mexican inspired dishes i.e. black bean, avocado and corn salad.
