We’re still here struggling to stay cool, it was 108 degrees when I left work for the gym today! And even worse tomorrow, yuck! Miko has been a little tired of being stuck inside.
And I’m trying to channel fall and cooler temps with this simple and light salad dressing. It’s sweet, has a warming cinnamon flavor that works perfectly with chopped apple. But is still cooling and refreshing for unexpected and insanely hot weather.
Cinnamon Fall Dressing
- 1 banana, peeled and chopped
- 2 tbsp. apple cider vinegar
- 2 tbsp. lemon juice
- 1 tsp. cinnamon
- 1/2 cup water, as needed
- salt and pepper to taste
Place all ingredients into a high speed blender and blend to a smooth and creamy texture. Serve and enjoy! Makes 2-4 servings.
The texture is creamy, but lighter and airier compared to a nut or seed based dressing.
And worked great with pumpkin seeds for a heartier salad.
The flavor is slightly sweet, savory, and tangy.
Of course I had to share our chilled watermelon dessert.
