I first wrote about this herbal Liquid Gold salad dressing over a decade ago when I reviewed the book Get raw by Brenda Davis. This particular recipe intrigued me because it was so rich in healthy ingredients and had a whopping 2,600 milligrams of vegetable omega-3 fatty acids per serving.
Liquid gold salad dressing that is rich in omega-3 ingredients
This is definitely a one-of-a-kind salad dressing. It’s not a mix I made up, but it worked. Compared to other vinaigrettes, it was surprisingly soft – slightly sweet, slightly spicy and slightly hot. I’m not a big lemon juice fan, so I added apple cider vinegar to the juice and adjusted the ratio.
I use Flaxseed oil for the biggest omega-3 boost and because I prefer the taste. But hemp oil also works well and is still quite rich in these heart healthy fatty acids.
Please note that this recipe contains a touch of sodium due to the soy sauce. If you’re watching your sodium intake, you may want to use a low-sodium soy sauce or a substitute Coconut aminos. Coconut aminos are a sauce that is slightly sweeter, less salty and much lower in sodium than soy sauce.
