As a non-meat eater, I often eat a lot of salads, especially when I'm eating out at places that aren't herbivore friendly. After the 15th salad in a week, I get sick of eating the same salad dressings. That's where this recipe comes in.
Not only did it take 5 minutes to whip up in the blender, but it's absolutely delicious. The pear nectar is the perfect base for the sesame oil and soy sauce, and the fresh ginger gives it a nice little Zing!
Although this dressing would be excellent on any salad greens, try it over spring mix, tossed with mandarin orange slices and sliced almonds.
Asian Pear Dressing
3/4 c pear nectar
2 tbsp cider vinegar
2 tbsp sesame oil
1 tbsp soy sauce
1 tsp fresh ginger, minced
Freshly cracked pepper
Place all ingredients in a food processor or blender, and process for 30 seconds, or until smooth. Season to taste with pepper.
