A scrumptious salad with fresh apples, sweet raisins, smokey coconut bacon and a creamy ginger peanut dressing!
Ginger Peanut Dressing
Dressing: In a small bowl, mix together the dressing ingredients. Add water, a teaspoon or two at a time, as needed to create desired consistency. Taste for flavor adjusting as needed. If dressing becomes to thin, add a bit more peanut butter to thicken. Set aside.
Salad: Create your salad by adding a few large handfuls of salad mix to your serving bowl—top with diced apple, handful of coconut bacon, currents and slivered almonds. Drizzle ginger peanut dressing over top and enjoy.
Adjusting salt and sugar: I used raw almond butter for the dressing. If using other nut butter containing salts and sugars, you may not need as much maple syrup or a pinch of salt – just something to consider.
Packaged coconut bacon: Don’t feel like making coconut bacon, you can purchase pre-packaged from Phoney Baloneys. It’s delicious! Look for it at your local grocery store or order online from participating retailers.
Nut-free option: If you have nut allergies, try using tahini in place of the nut butter.
