Ginger is a healing superfood. It is well known to reduce nausea and soothe the digestive tract. Ginger also fights cancer and is a powerful anti-inflammatory. Ginger can be used as a powerful tool in pain control like the pain of arthritis. For more about the healthful properties of ginger, check out the information supplied by the World’s Healthiest Foods. Ginger gives the immune system a boost as well.
This dressing also includes probiotic-rich kombucha, lemon, honey, and avocado oil. Meyer lemons are actually a cross between lemons and mandarin oranges. If you haven’t had them, I encourage you to try one. I like to order small-farm, chemical-free Meyer lemons from the Lemon Ladies when they are in season (which is winding up now.)
This recipe is friendly to those on the Paleo Autoimmune Protocol. Enjoy!
Ginger Kombucha Dressing
- ¼ cup ginger kombucha (homemade or Kevita/GT’s brands recommended)
- ⅓ c avocado oil
- 1 Meyer lemon (zest and juice) (I use a microplane to zest the lemon)
- 2 TB honey (you can use less if the kombucha you are using is on the sweeter side)
- 1 tsp fresh finely grated ginger (use a microplane)
- Salt to taste
Make the dressing: Add all ingredients except oil to a blender and blend completely. With the blender on low, slowly add the avocado oil until thoroughly blended and creamy. (Note: This dressing will very likely separate–just shake the jar prior to using.) Can be stored in the refrigerator for one week.
