Tea Vinaigrettes, Part 1

Tea Vinaigrettes, Part 1

Summer makes for the best salads! We wanted to show you different ways to use your favorite teas in recipes, and salad dressings are a great way to use them. In the first installation of this summer salad dressing series, we're giving you two great recipes: a fat-free Strawberry Pomegranate Vinaigrette, and a Blueberry Mango Balsamic dressing. Let's get started. 

 

Strawberry Pomegranate Vinaigrette 

 

1 cup fresh Strawberries 

1 cup strong cold-brew of I Heart Pomegranates 

2 tbsp. Apple Cider Vinegar 

4-5 large Mejdool Dates, pitted 

1 pinch Himalayan Salt

 

Blend all ingredients together, and you're done! This pairs great with nuts (macadamias are wonderful), coconut, and herbed cheeses (my favorite are nut-based goat-style cheeses). 

 

 

Mango Blueberry Balsamic Vinaigrette 

 

3/4 cup strong cold-brew of Blueberry Thrill (do not oversteep, as this will get bitter)

1 medium Red Mango, ripe 

1/4 cup Coconut Oil, melted 

1/2 medium Avocado 

2 tbsp. Balsamic Vinegar 

1 tbsp. Lemon Juice 

1/4 tsp. Vietnamese Cinnamon 

1 Date, pitted (optional)

2 leaves Basil 

Salt, to taste

 

This dressing is rich but mild and complex, and works well in salads that feature sweet fruits.

5 Reasons To Try Butterfly Blue Pea Flower Tea

August 21, 2021

Did you know that there are very few true blue things in nature that are edible? Most blue foods are actually varying shades of purple. But the amazing butterfly flowers make a tea that is literally, really, truly, blue. The blue color comes from a special type of bioflavonoid pigment that is not only an outrageously blue color, it actually has health benefits as well. These bioflavonoid pigments support your health in three important ways: they are antioxidant, anti-inflammatory, and anti-carcinogenic.
