Tips + Suggestions

** VEGAN + LOW FODMAP use maple syrup, not honey.

 

ADD chopped fresh herbs – I love Rosemary in this dressing.

 

DRESS salad leafy greens just before serving so they maintain their crispness and don’t get soggy.

 

SERVE alongside your salad drizzling a teaspoon or so over what you are going to eat.

 

STIR through warm legumes and grains to brighten their flavour
