Maple, Lime & Dill Salad Dressing

and to think I used to find salads boring. Shame on me!

We’ve only been seeing each other for a few months but I like to think my acupuncturist and I have become friends (which is no mean feat considering she sticks needles in my soft fleshy parts twice a week).

As I was lying there yesterday doing my best porcupine impression, she said she’d invented The Best Salad Dressing Ever.

I confess I made a “srsly?” face when she was describing it to me but, by the end of our session, she won me over. Either that or I was high on acupuncture-induced endorphins.

you could switch up the lime with some other citrus and see what happens...that's next on my list

I whisked it together that very night and both hubs and I were impressed. Girl knows her salad dressings.

It’s tangy, sweet and just the right amount of sour. She recommends drizzling it over kale but I stuck with butter lettuce leaves and threw in some avocado for good measure.

It is surely proof that she and I are destined to be BFFs forever. Me, her and her needles are going to be very happy together.
