clover sprouts & tangy honey mustard

This salad dressing is so easy to make, and it keeps in the refrigerator for a long time. Having dressing on hand encourages me to eat more salads, so I usually make a pint or quart at a time.

Tangy Honey Mustard Dressing
1/2 c olive oil
1/2 c lemon juice
1/4 c white vinegar
1/4 c dry mustard
1 T (heaping) honey
4-6 cloves garlic
1 t salt
1/2 t turmeric

In a blender, throughly blend all ingredients…and that’s it!

For this particular salad I used clover sprouts, radishes, cucumber, and sunflower seeds that I had already soaked and dehydrated. The dressing would go well with any fresh garden vegetables, so just have fun with it! There are multiple ways to sprout, but I’ve found a large jar with a screened lid works really well for small seeds like clover and alfalfa. I cover the bottom of the jar with about an inch of seeds, then cover the seeds with an inch of water, and let the seeds soak overnight. In the morning I pour the water out and rinse the seeds in fresh water. After that, I shake the seeds around and try to spread them evenly inside of the jar. I rinse the seeds about twice a day until they are ready to eat, which is when they have two tiny leaves. Not only is sprouting really simple, but they are extremely nutrient dense. So eat sprouts!

  7. Karla: It’s not spicy, but it’s pretty tart. You can lighten up on the vinegar and add more honey to tone it down. How that helps!
