Ratatouille Dressing (gluten free and preservative free)
This is an easy dressing that goes well on most salads and vegetables that brings flavor to a whole new level.
1/2 cup organic yellow mustard seed (may combine with a bit of brown seed but the yellow seeds are tastier)
1 cup raw organic apple cider vinegar with mother*
1/4 cup organic heirloom tomatoes
1/4 cup grated butternut squash or any winter squash
1/2 cup organic cold pressed extra virgin olive oil
1 lemon, juiced
Himalayan salt to taste
Tip: add a splash of high quality balsamic vinegar if you wish.
Soak the mustard seed in apple cider vinegar in a glass container until fully plump (about 12 hours). Blend seed and vinegar together in a high speed blender (like Vitamix). Then add olive oil, heirloom tomatoes, grated butternut squash, lemon juice and Himalayan salt to blender and blend all well together.
* raw and refined apple cider vinegar that still contains the culture of beneficial bacteria (mother) that turned the apple cider into vinegar through secondary fermentation.
