“This is a keeper recipe” – Dad

YOU GUYS. My “healthy food hating” dad was ALL over this dressing and it made my heart so happy.

It’s seriously vibrant and tangy and zippy but also sweet and fruity and FRESH! Basically, it replaced my old “go to” salad dressing, the Miso Lemon tahini dressing recipe, and now this one is ALWAYS in my fridge.

I actually made it years ago with the spiralized cucumber salad recipe and forgot about it…until recently.

And, for your sake, I am glad I remembered it because sometimes you just need to break out of the box from boring whole30 balsamic vinaigrette.

This recipe is going to make you want to make ALL your dressings at home! Here’s how to make it:
