If you’ve been following me for a while, you’ll know how important sauce, dressings, spices and other condiments are to me. They can turn any bland meal into a delicious culinary journey.
Unfortunately, many condiments are filled with sugars, preservatives and other nasties that aren’t good for us. Luckily for us, I have created many healthy dressings, sauces and spices that’ll brighten up any dish, including my Zesty Dressing.
Lemon and ginger is a wonderful combination, and when you add mint, it makes for a zesty fresh dressing that can be added to salads or used as a dipping sauce for meats.
