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.

You Will Love This Tea-Infused Red White & Blue Popsicle Recipe!

June 19, 2021

I was talking with a friend of mine about fun ways to incorporate tasty teas into some fun summer treats, and since July 4th is right around the corner, I thought it would be fun to make a red white and blue layered popsicle. I knew which teas could create the different colored layers, and put some thought into the flavors that I wanted to incorporate, so that the layered flavors harmonized with each other. The final product turned out great; it was sweet, tart, with a hint of lemony creaminess, and softened with lemongrass and lavender.
