Ginger Garlic Dressing

½ orange

1 (2-inch) piece, fresh ginger root, peeled and chopped

5 cloves garlic, peeled

2 tablespoon Balsamic vinegar

2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil

juice of ¼ lemon

Optional: Add 1 tablespoon Tamari for an Asian twist.

Peel the orange by cutting off just the outside bright orange part of the peel, leaving the inner white pithy part, which contains all of its beneficial bioflavonoids. Combine all ingredients in a blender and mix for 30 seconds to 1 minute. If you prefer a creamier dressing, blend longer. To thin the dressing add a tablespoon of water and blend again. Serve over leafy greens, steamed vegetables, grains or fish.
