In recent efforts to reduce my added sugar intake, I bought a container of plain yogurt. Unfortunately my morning breakfast is just not nearly as delicious with plain yogurt. After about a week and a half I realized that the rest of the yogurt was just sitting in my fridge, waiting to spoil. Naturally Greek food came to mind.
Wow, I feel like I am announcing one Friday after the other. Time flies… On the Hawaii front, my foot is slowly but surely getting better, only missed two days of work and my limp is almost gone. Some exciting news for this upcoming week, Iron Chef Morimoto is coming back into town to oversee how things are going at the restaurant. Stay tuned for the behind the scenes. This week I am happy to introduce you to Brandon from The Yummy Bits for our featured foodie with a delicious dressing for your healthy spring salads.
Sweet Onion Dressing
I don’t want to jinx it, but I think the summer heat is finally dying out; of course now that I said that it will probably be over 90 next week. That’s ok though because you need a few more hot sunny days to try this sweet vinaigrette recipe! I got the idea from the blog Coconut & Lime and figured it would be perfect for a nice sweet summer salad.
Once everybody had refilled their drinks at my Foodbuzz 24×24 party, I brought out the salad. One of my friends exclaimed, “There is alcohol in the SALAD!?” The answer to that is yes of course! I made a tequila citrus dressing with orange and lime juice. It is important not to put too much tequila in the dressing, since it isn’t cooked, but it mellows out the strong citrus flavors in this tangy dressing.
