Passion Fruit Dressing and an OXO Giveaway!

oxo salad004 I only like salad if I have some real ingredients to put in, like roasted tomatoes, hearts of palm, steak strips, or Pammy’s Dressing.

My friend Pam has a salad on her table every night, and more often than not it’s dressed with her special homemade sauce. I’d drink the stuff if no one was looking.

I really dislike store bought dressing. I keep one bottle in my fridge for emergencies, but generally I’d prefer to pour it down the sink than in my salad bowl. I try to pilfer Pam’s dressing when I can but now I finally can make a bottle of my own. The last time I made it I didn’t have orange juice concentrate, so I improvised with some Lilikoi. I went to salad dressing heaven.

Thanks to OXO, I now have a salad dressing shaker in the fridge at all times.

My favorite, truly functional features:

1) Flip top lid, no drips with a tight seal. Plus a spout that ensures you don’t have salad dressing dripping over the side.

2) Liquid measurement tick marks

3) Screw top, so you can clean it easily.

I love it. And now you can have one too.

OXO sent me an extra salad dressing shaker so I can pass it on to you.

oxo giveaway All you have to do is leave me a comment telling me about your favorite salad or dressing ingredient(s). If you have a link to a recipe, I’m always looking for inspiration!

You can get up to two extra entries for tweeting and/or following this blog.

Passionfruit Dressing (Lilikoi Dressing) (slightly adapted from Pammy’s recipe)

  • 2/3 Cup olive oil
  • scant 1/4 Cup apple cider vinegar
  • 1/2 tsp no salt seasoning
  • salt to taste
  • 3 Tbsp lilikoi puree
  • 1/2 tsp honey or more to taste (I like mine sweeter)
  • 1 Tbsp water
  • pinch of dried parsley
  • 2 Tbsp dijon mustard (not Grey Poupon)
  • 2-3 cloves garlic, minced
  1. Whisk or shake all ingredients together until uniform. You may need to shake again before serving.
  2. Tip: If your dressing gets very cold, it may separate or be difficult to pour. Wait until it warms to room temperature again, or put it in the microwave for a few seconds and shake.

OXO sent me this product for free. All opinions are my own.

My husband makes the best french vinagrette, olive oil, balsamic, mustard, salt and pepper. Maybe a dollop of honey or maple syrup.

Wow...that roasted salad with that awesome passionate dressing looks delish :)

My fave dressing ingredient is a toss up between a raspberry balsamic vinegar and
agave syrup (my new found love)

I made a quick Chinese style chicken salad tonite and instead of the usual "asian" style dressing I did a dijon,cilantro, balsamic, blend. It was nice and summery.

Love that salad photo :)

i'm one to make salad dressings but i love those japanese style vinaigrette with a slight ginger-y, citrus-y tang to it. i think your salad dressing seems really interesting because lately i've really been interested in lilikoi!

Seymour Chase said...

mmmmm - that salad looks delicious!
i think my favorite salad dressing is from a pizza place in AZ called Nellos - it's their house dressing. I don't know how they make it, but it's orange.

I like a somple balsamic viniagrette. Balsamic vinegar, a dab of honey, and olive oil (2: 1 Olive Oil & Vinegar). Shake in a jar to emulsify.

My favorite salad right now is this summer corn and cherry tomato salad. I just made it for the first time recently and one tip...DICE those shallots instead of thinly slicing them. I found them too overpowering sliced. But good stuff still! http://www.runningtothekitchen.com/2012/05/simple-summer-corn-tomato-salad/

I usually use a homemade White French. It's the best.

I love poppy seed dressing (especially on a spinach & strawberry salad). There is a pretty good recipe on the Betty Crocker website (http://www.bettycrocker.com/recipes/creamy-poppy-seed-dressing/c5bdff32-5745-45b8-80cc-f8c4f382a8d5) although I'm still looking for the perfect one!
