Chinese Chicken Salad Dressing

We love having a salad dressing on hand because it makes a healthy meal ready in a short time! This is the updated version of one of our old favorite recipes. What makes this a healthy recipe? Well, this delicious dressing has no fruit, potato, cane sugar, egg, dairy, or grain.

1/2 Cup Walnut Oil
4 Tbls Rice Vinegar
3-1/2 Tbls Minced Ginger (shredded)
1-1/4 Tsp Toasted Sesame Oil
1 Large Clove of Garlic (minced)
6 Tbls Rice Syrup
1 Tsp Salt
2 Tbls Water

Combine all ingredients. Refrigerate. This is a very light and flavorful salad
dressing. Toss with whichever veggies say “Amazing Asian Salad” to you!

Tofu Mayo

1 Pkg Firm Tofu (add Honey to taste, if desired)
1 Pinch Salt (add Basil, Chives, etc., if desired)
1 to 2 Tbls Oil
1 Tbls Distilled Vinegar

Blend in food processor or blender until smooth. Store in refrigerator. Mixes well
with tuna for salad or sandwich spread.

Turnip French Fries

(Doesn’t sound good, but they sure taste great!)
2 Turnips; trimmed, peeled and cut into thin strips
1 Tbsp. (Olive) Oil
Salt to taste

Preheat the oven to 425. Place the turnip strips in a large Ziploc bag and drizzle
olive oil (or oil of choice) over the turnips in the bag and add any seasonings that
you wish to be on the “fries”. Seal the bag and shake the contents well to coat the
turnips with oil.

Spread the turnips on a non-stick cookie sheet. Sprinkle the “fries” with salt if
desired and bake for 45 minutes or until brown and tender. Be sure to turn them
several times during the baking process. Serve immediately.

Note: The more ripe the turnips are, the softer they will turn out to be. You may
need to bake them up to an hour if you prefer your turnip fries to be crispy.
