Garden Salad with Fresh Apricot Dressing

This salad is a great starter for a summer backyard meal. The dressing for this salad is something really special, made with fresh apricot, Dijon mustard, and a touch of lemon juice. Summer comes around only once a year, so take full advantage of it.

Ingredients

  • 1/4 Cup olive oil
  • 1 Tablespoon lemon juice
  • 1 Tablespoon apple cider vinegar
  • 1 apricot, pitted
  • 1 Teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 7 drops stevia
  • 1/4 Teaspoon sea salt, preferably Celtic

Salad Shopping Tip

Buy green leafy vegetables like arugula, watercress, and collards – they are good sources of vitamins A, C, and K and minerals like iron and calcium.

Salad Cooking Tip

Brighten up sandwiches or salads with small, tender leaves like spinach and add larger, tougher leaves like kale to soups and stews.

Salad Wine Pairing

Salads with vinegar-based dressings don't go well with wine. Albariño, torrontés, or riesling with seafood or poultry salads in mayonnaise- or cream-based dressings; pinot gris/grigio, sauvignon blanc, sémillion, or grüner veltliner with salads with lemon juice-based dressings.
