5 Delicious Salad Dressings You Can Make at Home
Got yogurt? Leftover taco ingredients? A cabinet full of spices? Here's how to turn them into a delicious accompaniment to any bowl of greens.
The Spices Gathering Dust In Your Cabinets
It can be challenging to use up jars of whole spices before they lose their potency
, which is one reason we love this Moroccan-inspired dressing. It has you toast whole cumin and coriander seeds in a frying pan to amplify their flavors, then stir in turmeric and cinnamon and grind the mixture. Whisk the spices with olive oil, lemon juice, garlic and salt, and the result is a warm and spiced dressing with complex layers of flavor.
Try it with:
Salads that feature sturdy grains, such as couscous or bulgur; or oranges, dates and other fruit (the robust spices enhance their flavors.)
